The setting for this old fortress is quite lovely and peaceful. Unfortunately, we didn't realize that you can't go inside the buildings without a guided tour (offered during the summer or by prior arrangement).

Nice castle but later used as prison! The water around the castle was full of jellyfish. The locals love to be here for the beach and the park. A good way to spend the Sunday afternoon.
