Fortress Tour – A brief description
Constructed between 1729 and 1736; a gateway building with casemates which defends the entrance; the gate guard’s duty post.
All adults and children will find something of interest on our 9.5 ha large fortress. You should plan at least two hours for a tour of the fortress. During a guided tour you will also be able to access the 400-year old lower basement and the underground casemates.
Casemate - ital. casa matta (covered house) – cannon-proof fortress rooms.
