  • It was one of the best tours in the Citadel. Very well preserved, it is worth pausing a little time to admire these treasures

  • To me it was the best thing to see in the citadel. It is very well restaurated and very nice. Definitely a must see when in the citadel. 
  • It is a beautiful place, to us that day we rained a bit, but doesn't matter because everything had a color, and with the heat making up to rain is appreciated.
