This is on the waterfront and we enjoyed the breezes, the views and the fact they did not charge an entry fee. There was also an interesting art show.

Nice castle with free admission. I did not take the guided but it was really nice to stroll around. It is quite a big place and well maintained. Fantastic view, not crowded during my early afternoon visit. Well worth a visit.
