  • The fortress Santa Barbara is a very shady side of a public park with a large rectangular basin decorated with Lotus flowers in full bloom and other Lake plants. You enter the fortress through an arch and a bridge with three arches. At the entrance there is a very nice lady who greets visitors, admission is free. I would rather pay a ticket and have a guided tour or an explanatory leaflet. It is a shame because the site is very large but the visitor is left alone without even a sign or a map.
