  • A place with great history and excellent guided tour, as well as interesting tanks and weapons, the guide takes his time to explain every thing and is teaching, recommended 100%

  • Went to a tour night in the real Felipe, was very great, US led to know the fortress to dark :) was very interesting the stories told. Go to the night tour you like :) you feel rather gloomy but exciting, if you like the horror stories.
