  • Is a very large monument, you should go up the steps if possible. The further it goes up, the tighter the aisle becomes, so you shouldn't be afraid of space. You should take the elevator, which unfortunately does not go all the way up. The last 50 steps you have to walk. The view is magnificent. The museum can be used with the ticket for the monument. For the toilet 0.70€ I do not like.
