Edinburgh Castle Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Perched on the Castle Rock site, the castle looks impressive. By turns, fortress, royal residence and military garrison, the castle is an ensemble of buildings built on several levels of a more civil than military appearance and joined by cobbled paths, making it feel like a big village. As well as the esplanade used for the Military Tattoo and the fortifications that afford a superb view of Princes Street, you must see the Scottish crown jewels, housed in the Royal Palace.
