As the is not a lot here to see, (many people begrudge paying the 2.50 euro entrance,) so dont actually enter the fort, ok its been restored (to a extent) but nothing special. Best thing about this area are the far reaching views, you can only stop and imagine what the area was like 100 years ago. Visited Sunday Morning... More

Small museum in the Fort. Not that much to actually see. As we are pensioners we were charged half price entrance.

Didn't manage to visit the place from the inside as there is hardly anything to see from the inside. The fort has been restored and looked after and is always a decent site to visit and walk around.

Beautifully restored fort. Lovely to walk around it with lots of photo opportunities. Looks like it is a favorite also for wedding pictures. Not very big with 2.50 euro entrance fee

Only 2.5 euros for an adult, doesn't take too long to get around. Nice view along the beach from the battlement. Shame it's largely restored, but there are some medieval Christian and Muslim headstones, and the execution chamber which us Brits used into the 1940s! Fairly quiet and a chance to get some shade from the sun.

Interesting to see the old tombstones, as well as the artifacts in the small museum. I personally loved the tower in the building next door..amazing construction.

The castle is small but well preserved. The museum is rather dated but has some interesting photographs. The old execution chmber (hanging) is a sombre experience. Nice views from the battlements.
