Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Liguria / Italian Riviera / Savona / Fortezza del Priamar
Standing on a hill, Fortezza del Priamar is a fortress built in 1542 that was used as a military prison for many years. As you approach the structure, just a short walk from the dock, stop to admire the architecture. Once inside, you will be able to explore the halls and towers, which offer great views over the ocean. There is also a museum dedicated to the history of the fortress. See Fortezza del Priamar and all Savona has to offer by arranging your trip with our Savona online visit planner.

Pretty awesome place. Feels very historical inside. Especially enjoyed bird watching. Many pigeons abound within the surroundings. Amazing view of the city as well!
A neat place and easily reached frim anywhere in Savona. Not crowded, so you really get to enjoy the fortress and its views. Always astonishing to see something this old yet in such good conditions. Respect to the keepers here. The view over the town, the Sea and the beach is just beautiful.
