Cette forteresse est dans un état remarquable de conservation, sa situation en bord de mer est exceptionnelle et offre des vues imprenables. Visite très intéressante. more »This fortress is in a remarkable state of conservation, its seaside location is exceptional and offers stunning views. Very interesting visit.
Impressive and very well-kept, the views and energy of this place are something to take away with you. We visited during the summer, which means it is preferable to avoid the very hot hours of the day, but it also means you're in for amazing sunsets. Unfortunately, it closes at 8 and last admission is at 7.45 which is a very bad choice, since you need at least one hour to say you have seen most of this place. Also, the personnel was not very nice to us, given that we arrived late, we were the last to go in and they were keen to get it over with. The ticket price is very low though, it's 2 euros for adults and kids and students go free, so even if you go in for twenty minutes, it's still worth it.
Beautiful visit, good for an easy 1h30 walk, very clean and well maintained. They're open from 8am to 8pm during the summer, entrance is 2 Euros per person. Wander around the castle and its massive surroundings, with beautiful vistas on the beach and islands, and climb up the lighthouse at the seaside edge.
