A beautiful place to visit as the views from here are absolutely superb. Full views of the coast line and the fabulous Mediterranean sea. Stay until sunset as the sun goes down over the Mediterranean, superb.

Fantastic views, there is a restaurant there and it costs €2.00 to go into the turret which includes a Fantastic virtual reality tour of the silver mine that is truly amazing, a must visit if you are in the area.

Beautiful! The views from the top our amazing. The added bonus of the virtual geo tour was super fun. The walk up the mountain to get to it was a workout but well with it. Had we only known we could have driven up there. I think San Juan de Los Terreros was one if my favorite towns. Will go back there to explore more.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
