  • A place to visit, rich in history and assets until not very long ago! You can visit the cells and to know the biography of some of the people who "accommodated" within these walls. A place that will give you chills...

  • Free. Building itself not as well maintained, says is not as much. No furniture more. Charm is in the stories of the people who were trapped (panels with pictures and verhaalin the cells). Reception OK. Take with you if you're in the area, not a big detour for. Steps to make it more difficult to access for people with mobility.
