Really interesting!

Great snapshot of life 2000 years ago in the area. Really atmospheric setting for such a discovery. The rest of the castle is great to walk around, too.

The Castle itself is interesting but the Shipwreck museum is the best part.The number of well preserved artifacts is remarkable and the actual remains of the ship is awesome. It was very good to see the part built replica which showed just how well constructed this ship was.
