  • It’s free to enter this old fort, with its commanding position guarding the harbour. There’s a small café in the grounds but nothing else. The views from the various ramparts give a glimpse of Savona....  more

  • The military Fort is worth a short visit as long as the exhibitions are NOT open to public - otherweise it's probabely a better choice to visit. In my case I used this impressive old Building...

  • 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.
