It’s a cool castle but you can’t get in probably for safety reasons.

Nice intro to the fascinating history of the area. Slightly scary and steep stairs inside to get to the top but a must-do. Definitely worth a look and good value for money. Oh and you can practice your hand at archery for a small fee ?

An interesting castle. Reasonably priced. 30Kn adults 20 Kn kids. Great views inside, a long video on the history but the up and down to get up the largest tower could do with a lot more organisation. Literally it is all go one way until a gap which can make a long wait. Would be 4 stars except for this. Worth putting up with and definitely worth a visit.

The fortress was built when Dalmatia came under the protectorate of the Republic of Venice. Today, you can see the walls connecting the three towers of the fortress. On the highest tower is an observation deck with a beautiful view of the sea and yachts. The stairs inside the tower are steep and narrow, it can fit one person, so you had to wait to go up. Nearby there is a soccer stadium for 1,000 spectators. The tower is now mostly used for cultural events. Also this tower is often used by filmmakers. Admission is paid.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
