  • Medieval fortress can also be visited for a leisurely stroll along the walls. With a rich history in summer it hosts events and visions cinema outdoors. Could be used with greater frequency and improved the offer for the tourist. Shameful the presence of teenagers dummkopfs fouling and drinking smoking ashis in reckless disregard of one who is too attentive to parking and not security and decorum of their city.

  • ... the Priamar is worth a visit in the evening. We will be back hoping to be luckier meteorologically speaking.

  • The Priamar fortress is a place where tourists should definitely go. It is steeped in history and then in the summer they make shows and more. Not to be missed.

  • A mighty castle between sea and the touristic Port. Large sandy beach with grave on the water's edge. Nice to stay.
  • Beautiful Fortress, next to the touristic port of Savona. In the past was a prison. There's a bar inside.
  • 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.
