The fort is a magnificent site to see. It is so well kept and maintained. There are tours throughout the Fort including a very cool tunnel tour. Very educational and fun information is packed into the tours. It is like taking a step into history when you are beyond the fortress. And do not miss the view on top of the Fort.
