New Fortress

New Fortress

Construction of the New Fortress to protect the city against the Turks began in 1577 and was considered an architectural miracle in its day. Inside you can wander through empty stone halls and passages and climb to the top for amazing views over the town. Your ticket includes a free drink at the café.
