  • This was a surprise visit for us. We saw the fort from a distance and decided to check it out. We were glad we did. Entrance fee is €0.50. The fort is well maintained and offers plenty of photo ops of the Atlantic and beaches. There is a small museum and cafe down below.
  • At entering we were quickly welcomed by a host that explained the entrance fee is 50 (euro) cents. Pretty cheap for a well maintained fort and weapons exhibition. Plenty of photo ops around the canons and view at the Atlantic. Worth all of my 50 cents!
