At the Var you can see several things in one visit. This is by the castle and fire tower. Several places to walk and have great views.

It was built memorating the victims of WW I. There is an exhibition inside about the heroes of important wars in history, there is a terrace to provide a view of the city and a small present shop attached to it.

The gate has historical value to the Castle but is a reproduction. It is really not significient by itself it is everything you see on the Hill that makes this so worthwhile. This should not be separated out from the Castle Hill site.

This gate should be part of the Castle hill on this site as it is not an attraction on itself. Merely the entrance gate to the castle hill square.
