Again, it is a part of a walking ticket (5eur). It was a challenging long walk up (at least for me) to reach this point but it was rewarding with breathtaking views and a little exibition in the tunnels.

Preserved gun battery that shows you how the guns were loaded and you can go inside one of the huge 100 year old guns. Great views
