“Only 1 euro 70 entrance but not a lot to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Lovely views from the top but not a lot to see otherwise. There is a small museum upstairs with some bits of pottery on show. Toilets leave a lot to be desired. A few old cannons and the hanging room where they hung prisoners. Can't even get a cup of coffee there.

“Didnt go inside”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Didn't go inside the Fort as it was too late on in the day but looked lovely through the gate. i think they charge 1 euro 70 to get in so it wont break the bank even if its rubbish!

Nice little place, lots of history, nice people in charge, it took about 20 minutes to look round and there are some nice views from the top, around quite a nice photo opportunity.
