The doors were locked so we could not enter. But it is a nice view from the outside.

Mistra Ruins, perched on the mountain, accessed through narrow and winding poorly maintained roads, full of churches and monasteries. Although they are mostly destroyed, unfortunately. Our Evangelist is one of them. It is highly recommended to bring water in summer and a coat in winter. It goes without saying the need to wear protective sports shoes. There are parking spaces at both entrances, the first at the beginning of the city, at the foot of the mountain. A second, a third from the top and the king's palace. Admission costs 12 euros.

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
