Built atop the Tossal Hill overlooking the city, the Castillo de San Fernando or the Ferdinand Castle is a counterpart of the Castle of Santa Barbara. It was built in the beginning of the 19th century as a defence structure against French advances. Sadly, it proved useless and was abandoned shortly after. The ornate doorway is proof of how beautiful and grand the castle used to be.
