After a stroll along the harbour front and a visit to one of the seafront restaurants we always end up with a visit to the castle. Inside is not particularly interesting but once you end up on the roof and in the sunshine you have a view around the harbour and across the Mediterranean. I have taken many photographs from...

The castle's location is nice except of the bad smell. The inner space is small and 2-3 minutes are enough to explore it. The view from the terrace is great. The entrance fee of 2,5€ is highly overpriced.

Best view from afar and from the outside. Nothing much to see on the inside so suggest you don't make a special journey. OK if you are nearby.

The fee is minimal and given its status it is well worth the effort. If you are a history lover, then this is worth it, but you might need imagination or preceding to fill in the gaps. The information board is a good helper though.

The castle is a Historical Monument with deep history at the end of an open walkway with restaurants looking out to sea. Ticket Price is minimal and worth the little walk around. It is not a long stop and can be done before or after a boat trip which depart from the same harbor.
