I like the different rock textures in this shot. The stairway is bolted to the side of the cliff face and you can see through the gaps between the steps. The ascent is not an easy one to make if you don't like heights, but the view from inside is worth it. A very unusual structure to find in Europe.

Nice photo of an interesting place! Reminiscent of the cliff dwellings in the American southwest - when was it constructed? One can see many square holes in the rock face which I assume supported an older stairway and perhaps some older structure below.

Sadly, a rockfall in January 2010 destroyed the right side of this unique structure, and it is no longer open to visitors. For comparison, see two recent photos here and here.
