A short hike up from down town. Nice spot to view the city. Small museum inside, nice to listen to the stories. FREE of charge. Bring your own food and sit down outside in the area.

We were just outside the building, a great park area to have a picnic. There are toilets and a restaurant up there. Nice place to bring the family for a daytrip. Fun place to play and run for kids and dogs. Adventure!

This fort is quite plain, but the views are amazing and there is a great park behind it that will let you look out at the sea and the city. Highly reccomended.
