  • A great place for all ages. With rooms that serve to educate children and adults in different areas. Newly opened ones that emulate as it was the prison in those days and how the inmates lived.

  • good place
  • Interesting!
  • Full of activities for everyone
  • Goods in the former prison, unfortunately were up on a few cells converted as a Museum, to see anything. All statements were only in Spanish. Otherwise, we could not visit the fortress. The entry of €3.5 per person was not justified.

  • Museum dedicated to the former prison, very valuable to know the old process of imprisonment to prisoners in the country. On the other hand renewed for children to offer an experience of learning and discovery.
