Very bad experience in this place, I walked in with the intention of seeing the castle, went at around 9:15am considering the place opened at 8:30am the person who was supposed to open the ticket office arrives at 9:20am in the most relaxed manner smoking...More

We visited te castle hoping to be able to see the city from the towers or walls but all areas that can be visited are downstairs. So overall not bad but not what I expected from it. What was nice was an exposition of paintings.

My landlady said "just visit the outside, inside is boring and not worth paying." So I listened. It is very picturesque and I was there several times a different times of the day to see how light changed it. I like it.

Even if one doesn't know the history of this gorgeous fortification it speaks for itself in terms of importance. A photographer's delight!

The renovation of the castle is well done. I believe not in function of the original aspect as it was destroyed several times, but probably in function of typical historical events. Worthwhile to be visited and cheap entrance price.

No roof or tower access. You have 5 Salas with art and that is about it. Not even a window to look out over the ocean or city. 3 Euros per a person and they Doo take credit card. We were done in 10 minutes....More

The castle is far larger than it looks! As you venture inside, you soon get an idea of the size and splendour that once adorned this massive structure. For only 3.00 euros it was well worth the money as you can spend a few hours...More
