3€ to walk up a few steep stories, but if you have vertigo, beware the way down. Amazing structure and the views are stunning. Not for the faint hearted or unfit is all I can say.

You can't miss it if you walk uphill and take the stairs (100 steps). Read the history. Too scary to consider ascending stairs, since I broke away from the cruise excursion and I didn't have my passport.
