The earliest remains found in this impressive, castle ruin date from the 13th century. The castle has seen a number of renovations since then, undergoing remodelling in the 16th century, with each addition the castle’s façade grows in splendour – with multiple styles of architecture on show including intricate carvings upon the stone. This ornate and atmospheric historical site is ideal for those who wish to learn more about the area and its local history, or for those who have an interest in ancient architecture.
The castle was originally erected in the 11th century and changed hands a number of times, seeing a turbulent history up until the present day.
