Displays, restoration, and talks are continually being improved. This is a GRAND chunk of fascinating history. Kids will like it, too - climb the battlements and look out over the bay. Daily cannon firings.

One of the NHS, the fort offers a overlook of the river and a 16-centurary Spanish city look. The roof is also good for photo.

We didn't see any inside the fort, but they were down around the bottom (where the old moat was).
