Tower of arcades is the most interesting among all the others. It has a unique architecture and let you imagine how it was in the medieval time. I would say all the fortification wall and the towers are worth visiting. Be sure to stay overnight and explore these attractions without so many tourists.

Just like the other numerous watch towers positioned on each side of the fort offer panoramic views of the outdoor landscape truly unforgettable. For those who do not intend to spend € 9 to reach the top terrace on top of the church, this is an exceptional lookout point, with a little 'luck and at low tide you will have... More
