    The castle is easily accessible from the Town Center by lift. The courtyard before the Castle offers a beautiful view of the town and the Bay. Visiting hours is a little odd, from 18 to 23 and at the time of our visit offers a photographic exhibition of vip quite interesting.

  • From above one can see the whole Bay. These days it houses an exhibition of paintings, extended in all premises. We didn't pay anything. To climb to the base of the castle there is a convenient elevator.
