The spectacular Edinburgh Castle dominates the city from the top of a large, volcanic rock. The silhouette of this medieval fortress against the blue sky or overcast by violet clouds is unforgettable. It is, without a doubt, the symbolic heart of the beautiful city of Edinburgh. The castle, still in use, and very attractive, has a long history, full of legends and fairy tales. Protected by cliffs, access to the fort is only possible via the High Street, located in the Old Town. During the summer months you can visit between 9.30 and 18 pm. During winter, the opening times are from 9:30 am to 17 pm.
