The prison is OK. It gives you a decent knowledge of the history. It can be quite confronting. It takes about 1hr tops to look around.

It’s worth to go there but am sad that people show less respect and throw their rubbish everywhere. Many things are destroyed and lay around. No care is taken by responsibles.
