If you make the steep climb to the ramparts you will be rewarded with a sweeping panorama across the bay but not much else of interest. There is one nice brick "window" where you can frame your picture with the Cathedral tower in the background....More

Nothing interesting. Most of the passages are closed. Small children playground, small cafe- in different places ... we didn't enter the museum - one can make an impression looking through the windows

Nice view, free entrance, cosy coffee place inside with pannini options. Perhaps there is more i didn't try the place myself. Very old and genuine feel. Apparently they give concerts there from time to time.

The fort is good to see. Archeological remains are interesting. The view of city and the Bay from TOP is great. Well worth the climb up.

Massive! It was a nice day when we visited so we lunched at the available vendors on site, walked around, had a couple of drinks then explored some more :) Need good walking shoes because of uneven surface,
