  • 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.
