  • Very impressive building and amazing piece of history. The lady at the till was very nice and helpful :)
  • Interesting but expensive for what it is and full of inaccuracies.
  • Lovely historic site, rather gruesome torture display. Well preserved
  • Great perspective of the past. The house is an impressive monument and the inside is also very well conserved. There is also a permanent exposition about torture.
  • An interesting fort built into a cliff.
