we walked up here on a very hot day; had great views but not a must in my opinion; can't go up the tower and not a lot of explanation of history around.

Not a lot of tourists here but it will be a mistake not to go here. Very high on the mountains it will be great to take pictures here, plus there's a little church with arts on the wall within the fortress, pretty unique. We love it here and spent over an hour here taking pictures.

While it is quite a hike, I am glad I did it. I loved that you could look out and see most of the city from different angles. Going in the evening allowed me to see how the locals interact with the fortress as a place of rest and exercise which was interesting in and of itself. I only wish the museum was open longer so I could have gone in to learn more about the fortress.

Either take a cable car or walk up the hill to the fortress and lighthouse. It is a nice walk up the forested hill and quite refreshing from the hustle and bustle of the city. Once you reach there the historic lighthouse and building is quite nice but apart from that, there is not much else. The view is very pretty from the top and worth the journey. However, if you are short on time then you could give this a miss.

Just take the short cable car ride to the top and then take a short walk to enjoy the city views. You must not miss it.
