  • Step forced on the city... a place to take a good photo... very well preserved and care. You can see the fortifications

  • I got to a point where I could enjoy a beautiful view and an incredible intensity of wind that makes you vibrate... Good place to walk around and spend an afternoon... There is a descent that reaches the coast also.
