Small castle with crumbling base - not open to view and the surrounding rocks are quite dangerous, but worth the walk from the centre to have a look at

Small castle of surveillance and defense of the port. Built in mares stone, it is integrated into the coastal promenade, providing interest and a good place to enjoy a beautiful view over the sea
