Not for people with disabilities, trouble climbing cobble steps, walking on uneven surfaces! Visiting the citadel if a lot of work - the rewards are magnificent views, ancient architecture and points of interest. This is a photographer's haven in the early morning and at sunset....More

Take your time and enjoy the view. Fort, ancient rocks, history, panorama over the beautiful long beaches, it is something everybody must see in their life. And it won't cost you a single penny.

Lovey place to moor from our Cruise Ship The Thompson Majestic. Nice cafes on the front and of the Citadel to climb and view. Within its walls are cafes and restaurants....shops too. Sturdy shoes are needed and good hat is to be worn....

Genovese built in the 15th century, the walls are today covered by cactuses and fig trees. Excellent views of the bay and the cap.

Climb up to the citadel and take in the brilliant views. Then wander the streets before going back down to the seafront to relax with a coffee to watch the world go by.
