3/5 based on 30 reviews on the web
Explore Arad Fort, a 15th-century fortress built to monitor and protect the island. Today, it represents a great spot to take a strol, enjoy the views, have a drink, and take some artistic photos. Stroll around the site and reflect on the traditional architecture, which wasn’t altered during the fort's restoration in the 20th century; no modern materials, like cement, were used. See the four circular towers on the fort's corners, and peer down into the now disused moat outside the gates. From time to time, the fort serves as a venue for concerts and local festivals.
