  1. I visited here in July 2016. I didn’t feel or sense anything the majority of the time because it was really busy and in the middle of the day. But the dungeons and the infirmary, you can feel an overwhelming energy that is different than another other part of the castle I visited. Almost like you are being watched and that there are many more people in those rooms than just the tourists walking through the area with you! Much more in the prison/dungeon areas!
