  1. All I can say is this is absolutely and gloriously a stupendous location for a very beautiful architectural feat. As much I would like to go up and visit it, I would be unable to look down the cliff as I am deadly afraid of heights but maybe from inside the castle with a window pane in front of me and no earthquake shaking the earth… well I just might. This castle is also very different from the traditional castles that I have seen here on Virily and elsewhere as it is all whitewashed. It is absolutely gorgeous…
