Built in the 18th century as a fortress that was damaged in 1944 and then rebuilt as a theatre in 1953. The architecture of the military is retained with the watchtower and pyramid of cannonballs.

In walking back to the harbor from the palace, we found this garden area. The Theater looks like a very nice place to see a small event (small theater). We enjoyed the grounds but nothing really to go out of your way for.
