  • This is a small site that will not take you more than 30 min to visit, but is quite interesting to see some of the carved designs on the walls.  more »
  • A little like my accommodation. There were no beetles here though? Swept away somewhere else. Is the water drinkable...where did the prisoners get a drink from. Mind you don't bump your head and not.....  more »

  • Definitely not something you'll typically see when visiting historical sites but this one is really interesting to get an idea of how criminals were kept/treated. It is also included as one of the sites to visit when you buy a ticket to see the exhibits in the Citadel. If you have access, I would recommend visiting it because the doors, cells and set up all help you get a better appreciation for prisons at the time.
  • Not much to see (a couple of corridors and a few cells, plus a small cabinet of exhibits in the entry hall), but the medieval prisoners' graffiti (mostly ships carved into the stone walls) are interesting, and the stocks outside are a fun photo op. Admission is included in a 5 euro ticket that also covers four other little museums in the citadella.
