“Nearly missed it”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Very understated entrance hid a huge tunnel complex going in both directions. It is mainly 'as seen' without many staged rooms. Couldn't imagine having to stay in there for any length of time, but it was better than the alternative of being used for target practice.

“Check it out”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

When we went it was closed but from the entrance and literature it is a place you should visit. Make a ponit if you go in the off season of gonig to places in the morning. There is a new tourist office in the main square by the church (only opened 1st Dec) and they couldnt be more helpful

“WWII Air Raid Shelter”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The gentleman at the entrance provides a great background of the shelter and the history surrounding the shelter. Definitely take the time to see it if you're staying in town.
