  • Nice castle on the coast where you can walk around freely. There's no ticket booth or price of admission. It's a little odd to wander about as it's not made up all touristy and has dead ends. There seems to be a functioning office/meeting room area taking up a portion of the castle too.
  • A great citadel based on the remains of a fortifies abbey, on the port mouth in Porto, right next to the beautiful lighthouse. The place also houses model art exhibits.
