Castle

The oldest parts date from the 13C, but the castle was remodelled later. It is surrounded by deep ditches. When you visit, you will pass through the underground parts of the early building. On the first floor, an archaeological museum has been set up where you can see, amongst other things, a collection of Greek vases.
