These cliffs have been inhabited for centuries. In the middle ages, some very unpleasant robber barons lived here. The entry was the most stoutly defended. It used to be a split in the rock, but was improved upon with a medieval gate and walls. Still occupied in the 1960's the front had bigger windows punched through to make the rooms liveable. The upper levels are still galleries of rock with large holes that used to be chimneys (one still is), or have stairs in them. Now well fenced to prevent tourists falling into them.
