  • Very interesting and cool to explore. The inside of the castle was closed off from public view, which is why I rate 4 stars. There was no guides, so all exploring was done alone. Around this castle are a lot of small roads connecting different parts of a defense network. It's very beautiful and would be a nice place to have a picnic. There wasn't that many tourists around the fort either. To explore all the walk ways and outside fortifications require quite a lot of walking. Would also be a nice place to walk your dogs or bring children.
  • Ruins but really nice view and walk. There is a path to reach the beach... Quiet and beautiful.
  • Dog friendly, quiet place to walk. Historic buildings scattered around.
  • Lovely walkway past the fort and overlooking the sea, though you can't go into the fort itself.
  • Great place for a walk. The Fort is not accessible but the views are spectacular.
