  • A nice historic place and the underground tunnel was a fun exploration adventure. Good groups of family
  • Every time is like the first time jogging up a winding, steep hill with the most breathtaking views.
  • Only open for four days of the year, the fortress is a landmark that is well worth the $8 entry fee. Fire a rifle, see the communication room, read all about the brave soldiers and see replica shells and gun. Huge generator room and much more. Great visit.
  • Mint views of the city and a great place to get creative with some paints
  • Great old location, interesting history, and a nice walk around the hill with some great views!
