This is the place where the first torpedo was developed and made. Although it is almost derelict, it is still well worth seeing, although you need to be careful as it can also be quite dangerous. You must buy their excellent range of teas!

I've been many times, and whenever I have visitors I take them to take a look. It is abandoned, decrepit, probably even dangerous, and if that didn't sell it, it is a piece of world history as the place where the first torpedo was developed...More

So the old Torpedo-launching ramp is not in the best condition,but for sure that doesnt effect the sunset and the complete feeling of waves and light wind. Great place for couples and groups of friends.

Okay, it is not your usual tourist site but that's what I loved about it. You need to discover it, rather hard to find. Once you are there you really feel like you found something, it is a great sight if you are into ruins.

The Torpedo Factory is closed for years (and it produced tractors and other similar equipment), but the truth is that the torpedo is invented here in 1866, by naval officer Ivan Lupis and engineer Robert Whitehead. Sadly, there is little to see from the old...More
