  • Absolute must visit and free to European residents! Stunning views all around the city and port and a great castle to explore. Still undergoing archeological review and re-construction but definitely worth the steps up to the fort. Easy enough to find and walkable from around the city. Want to visit again in the evening for sunset!
  • Great ruin to walk around, make sure you grab the appropriate language leaflet before you make a start into the castle proper. The gardens are lovely and to be enjoyed with a slow stroll and the work happening in the second section should reveal some excellent views into original buildings. Make sure you take suncream and water, it gets hot!
