If you don't know what it is, you will just walk past and think it simply another old tower or wall.
Very historic and beautiful. You have to pay for the restrooms
I wanted to visit the restrooms. I was with my 2 & 3 year old kids And was asked to pay 3€! I explained that my kids wear diapers but I do not want to leave them outside. After paying 1€ for myself the guy at the entrance refused to give me the key for the restroom. Absolutly inacceptable!
