  • Its history is amazing. Not everybody knows how important was this place in the history of Spain. Its audiovisual is breathtaking (also in English) . It's very interesting to walk around it, and see all the fortress, and the recently opened underground galleries.
  • Nice place and well worth the money. For 5,00 euros you get entrance and an electronic guide. We liked the atmosphere here and the fact that there were very less visitors.
