  • Yes interesting, good to visit, though unfortunately on 8 December some attractions nn were accessible. Nice views of the open sea, well maintained the garden in which, thanks to specially equipped benches, you can make some branch or snacks ...

  • The fortress is quite impressive from the outside and it is good that you have retrieved for public use; certainly deserves more care internal and proposing some cos to be visited (I think that in summer and used for musical evenings, etc.). Within the cell can be visited by Mazzini.

  • To visit, a few minutes walk from the Palacrociere. Free admission. We have always found it open. Beautiful panorama. You only pay for the Museum that has the tightest schedules.

  • Historic fortress, can see the whole of Savona from the top. Amazing piece of history! Must see
  • An amazing fortress, I would HIGHLY recommend this attraction to anyone. I loved it and will definitely return.
  • It's the best monument in Savona. It was built to protect the city against the napolitanian invasions thought the sea, back in those days Italy wasn't unified... I just love this kind of mediaeval momuments.
  • Nice view
  • Ok
