  • It is the famous Barra lighthouse with free access and no ticket collection is worth the visit to register the photos.

  • Normal strengths, without much attraction, etc. You both have a museum, you have to pay, we don't visit, but I don't think it's worth paying to get into the museum. The visit to the fort is free.

  • I was happy to do this touristic part. Lots of explanation inside about the immigrant and boats. But the most amazing part was the upper point where we had to take the stairs. Very nice view and we had smoothy wind we enjoyed it a lot after being hours under the sun.
  • Best expirience ever in nautical museum. Very strong feeling.
