  • The military Fort is worth a short visit as long as the exhibitions are NOT open to public - otherweise it's probabely a better choice to visit. In my case I used this impressive old Building...

  • A simple fortress with cute bars and restaurants. They sometimes do music events at night, and they are very fun as they are out in the open and have a very large stage.

  • An info board would be good and unfortunately the museum is closed. If the entrance wasn't free, it wouldn't be worth a visit.
  • We had a lovely meal here, the waiting staff were excellent and the place had a lovely atmosphere.
  • Wedding on this majestic fortress was amazing! 😊 Very nice facilities.
  • This is a beautiful historic place to visit. Was a place where they kept prisoners many years ago. They have been adding new bits slowly, so whenever we go there is something new to see. Also a beautiful view from the top but a bit windy on a cool day. Definitely worth a visit if your in the neighborhood.
  • Beautiful views of the ocean. A Beautiful historic site
