Fort Ghazi Mustapha reviews
We asked the taxi to stop while we visited the fortress, however it was closed on Friday morning at 10 am. We looked over the port and around the ancient fortress whose walls could tell many stories. more »
Possible to walk inside of fortress on different stairs and levels. Liked old statues and ornamented stones . But - please information in English too! more »
Great monument, but not maintained by the authorities... Could be better
historical place, wonderful!
