  • Gorgeous views atop a mountain of rocks. The climb is steep but very rewarding. Beautiful monastery with a lot of history behind it. Bonus: there are lots of cute stray cats strolling around🥰
  • A really beautiful place with a really beautiful view. Entree costs €3 a person and women have to wear a skirt or a dress below the knee and over the shoulders, men have to wear long trousers and a shirt over the shoulders. It is definitely worth it!
