There’s little left of this old castle - one tower and the basement where the gaol is. A climb up the tower gives a few good shots at the main town hall. It’s a very small castle, quite picturesque (I think 2 euro to go...More

It only costs €2.50 but I don’t think it’s worth the money as there’s nothing to see really, there’s a couple of signs in English and some mannequins in old army uniforms. Better looked at from outside.

Really enjoyed our brief visit here. Probably a good option for people with kids. Even as adults we enjoyed the dress ups.

Not much is left of the Bastion tower, or what remains of what used to be the city's castle. After entering it we saw the small exhibition located in the interior and then climbed to the top for a view towards the old town.

The bottom of the castle has an old prison and some torture devices, my daughter really enjoyed the multimedia display. At the top, there's a rotating display, and she did an "archeological dig" while I was looking at the presentation.
