The visit of this fort was very interesting. The visit is mostly underground. The guide (Noami) was really knowledgeable and knew what she was talking about. The visit is detailed — is wasn't too long at 2h & 45mins.

This guided visit (in several languages) , mostly in the underground, gives you the feeling how soldiers lived at this time. The guide explains you many details about history and strategy of war: don't miss this visit!
