Lonely Planet review

The path to the right slightly uphill from the parish church, leads to the Three Crosses’ Mountain . If you’re coming from the watchtower, take the path to the left. There is some historical debate about the relationship between the crosses and the plague, which decimated the population of the town in 1708. It’s doubtful whether human remains found at the site when the crosses were erected in 1852 belong to plague victims. Some historians believe that the site was referred to as ‘cross mountain’ long before the cholera epidemic. Whatever the origins of its name, the mountain affords sensational views.
