A place where history is felt. The castle was built on the island next to the mainland in the 16th century by the Benedictines. Passing under the old walls, you involuntarily transport yourself back several centuries. An incredibly atmospheric place that gives charm to the entire neighborhood. It is worth crossing the bridge and entering a few streets.
