Really surprised as not expecting much. You can go outside, free of charge, and see the history of this fort, with audiovisual in second floor explaining the findings and history of the place.

It's not a very interesting but for little historical visit is very good. Free for entry and you'll receive a plan-guide. Some archeological sites, restored courtyard and the panoramic view from the top. Good for visit with kids.

Take the opportunity to visit and step up the tower to views of harbour and town. Watch your head when you go down below into the archaeology parts of the fortress.
