  • i wish i had more time at this place, we just had 5 hours , a days stay at least is needed, the whole town is awesome  more »
  • It is worth to air after two days on the ferry. A beautiful view of the sea and the Bay. Close to the very nice cafes and small restaurants. The inhabitants very friendly. While the same fortress is very small (four cannon from the 18th century. And two of the beginning of the 20th century. Tour lasts about 20 minutes including time for taking pictures.

  • City of dimwits troglodytes, that when they see a group of whales at sea, they stop working, they bring them to shore and get killed, for the pure pleasure of it! I forgot, they leave even proud!!!
