A complete surprise to find yourself easily inside this amazing underground 16C fortress built over other eras structures. Stop for the impressive immersive media art installation to gain a background. Truly a pleasant surprise.

What a very nice place to be when it is 42 degrees Celsius outside. Plenty of time to walk around and you can easily enter the Castle from different sides. Let’s hope they make it even more authentic and put some money and time in...More

Based on the history it's very cool to see- maybe plan half an hour- a lot of the area is closed off or possibly damaged, but they have restored a few hundred metres for the public to explore. The creative video was awesome, the gift...More
