  • Just really nicely done up, great English explanations. Marvellous view on the sea and city. Audio not needed to buy.  more »
  • Thankfully this castle is in the process of being restored. There is still areas left to be completed but the views from the roof top are beautiful.  more »
  • Beautiful old fort, located in the heart of the old town. The fort is simple but you certainly sense the history when you walk the space. Staff at the boutique and where they sell tickets were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful! They had an art expo when we visited showcasing the history of oil lamps, and the use of olive oil transported via the ports of Gallipoli and how that helped grow this city’s economy, including old lamp and lighting from Dublin to Spain. In addition, certain rooms showed the history of soap factories that formed by taking advantage of the left over raw materials of the olive oil trade. A lot of history on a small exhibit but nicely told. Bathroom located about 50 feet away between a few cafes and small shops.
  • Only valid if you’re are an architect (and loves forts). The information provided is all about the fort architecture and almost nothing about history. They also added some whatever art exhibitions in the middle, which felt a bit senseless. Quite boring.
