Was only 3 euro and you will get to spend at least an hour and a half plus visiting a fort. There is a very good military collection of artifacts from old to more recent times. If you like military firearms, this is a must.

I have been in bigger forts with lots of cannons and stone walls, but for the price paid this one is a good investment to spend a nice couple of hours. The outside is nice and the inside museus very interesting.

This fort houses a military museum that only costs 3 euros for entrance. If you are a military buff, its totally worth it. And the walk along the waterfront to get there was nice as well.

The Fortress affords beautiful views of the city and the port. It is well worth a visit just for the views but it also contains a military museum.

This imposing fort sits at the end of the main road along the waterfront. It is fronted by a war memorial and contains an army base as well as a museum, but its size and original function can just as well be appreciated from outside

Very well preserved fortification from old times when pirates and corsaries like to "visit " the island. This fort was a defense unit. A lot of artefacts like weapons, artilhery and so on.

Everyone should see the effort, which defended their possessions, their families from malicious newcomers arriving from the sea. History has shown the same moments in this small island also demanding great strength from the men who served and serve (!) in the fort.
