We went to see this 16th-century fortress, which has free admission. It is mostly art museums and administrative offices now, not many fort artifacts remain. It is worth seeing if you are in town and interested in art.

This citadelle is a mix of museums, offices and the city hall! The museum featuring the sculptures of Volti is amazing and well worth the visit.

Didn't expect much of this Citadelle but there were interesting rooms with sculptures and also outside sculptures. And many rooms and large grounds which were not evident from the outside.

We saw a lovely sculpture display by Voeti. The placement of the sculpture arount the citadelle was beautifully done. The garden and views where worth seeing as well.

This is a 16th century fortress that overlooks (protected in older days) the harbor. Free to walk around and houses a couple of museums (fee) and shops. Old canons still in place. Worth seeing if you are in town.

We really enjoyed our visit here. There's so much to see and it's all free. The staff are friendly and very helpful. One would need at least two hours to see everything. There's also a beautiful terrace garden with great views of the harbour.
