The show lasts about an hour (starts at 8:00) and the cost was $60p. Entire show is in spanish but still worth seeing and easy enough to follow along if you do not speak spanish.

Great Views from the top of the wall. Ring the Pirate attack alarm bell over the sea gate. You don't have to hit it hard for a loud sound. Great views from there. The museum underneath is Free too.

Walking along the wall you will find treasures in each baluarte: botanical museums, pirate stories, etcetera. There are some access points to walk on top of the wall and have a magnificent look of the city.

This city wall is no longer complete but it apparently had the sea just outside its main gate but the sea is further away now. It is strongly built with a museum inside part of the wall if you wish to walk the wall.

We came upon a section of the wall by accident and then found a little museum all about it. It was well worth the small entrance fee to be able to walk on top of the wall, get some history of the place and then...More
