Beautiful location and interesting fortress, although nothing too special. At the entrance was a bowl with water for dogs, which was often refilled. Very thoughtful on a hot summer day.

The place is worth a visit, can't remember the cost to enter but not to much. Lovely views across Pula, the museum is a bit weird.

It is a good idea to get a taxi up to this castle and then wander down into Pula as it is the highest point. It provides outstanding views and has interesting exhibitions. Well worth a visit.

The best view of Pula by far. There is a choice of steps or slow incline for accessibility. Interesting exhibitions but the star of the show has to be the views of the entire area.

Found this by accident, climbing steep steps on a side bank. Beautiful views from each rampart corner. If you climb up the mini tower in the middle, it’s probably one of the highest sites in Pula. Not much information inside but there’s a tiny museum...More

This fortress has a nice view but you will have to walk up many stairs to get there. It was nice but not the best one to see. There is a small museum to see some history of the area but really we did not...More
