We weren't inside as from our experience we know that usually inside there is not much to see.The history of the place is probably more interesting. From outside looks quite ok but the park around it is more interested. Nice place to sit and rest...More

I looked on Google to find a gallery and this was a shirt said from my apt. The fortress is amaxing in its own right but the Martin Chirino exhibition inside was stunning.

Easy to find and quite interesting but overall disappointed. Couldn't get outside at the top for any views, mostly about a display of sculptures. Definitely not worth the 4euros entrance fee.
