  • Used a Hall for a meeting. Nice but cold and sufficient room for watching video. Convenient parking fee with Monkey bars, excellent management of the bar with outdoor tables

  • The place is definitely beautiful, with stunning views of the sea, the Harbour, the city. Perfect for a walk in pairs, to see if you happen to Savona. The only flaw is that there are kids who smoke, screaming, loud music ... You should remove them because if you have kids don't shout certain words are very cute ...

  • The savonesi don't know value and advertise jewelry in their history. This fortress is one of the most beautiful things of Savona. Represents the history of Savona and there are historical memories that few cities can boast.

  • Good for a day with good weather. You can visit this historical place to see the town from another angle. It is very interesting history behind this place. You can take nice pictures from this location.
  • If you love medievel history, this place is a must see.
  • The fort itself seemed in parts uncared for, with graffiti being most places. No information signs around the castle to inform the visitors, we did not go in the museum and have therefore no review. Goeever, there was a lovely little bar on the west side which was excellent.
  • Travelled to Priamar to visit the Giampaolo Parini exhibition. The fort is very impressive and has been well restored. The exhibition of this great artist was first rate.
  • A mighty castle between sea and the touristic Port. Large sandy beach with grave on the water's edge. Nice to stay.
