Much bigger than we thought it would be. An informative video to start with followed by a hand held device gave us loads of information about the prison and its history. A little gruesome at times but that's all part of the understanding what it...More

Citrates in the historical centrum, small building, apparently there where not so many criminals that time. As this building is in the total centrum nearby a very nice church,it's worth to go visit. Nice wine bar nearby.

We went along to here not knowing what to expect. It was really educational and enjoyable. There are two separate exhibitions to See. We would recommend both. Well worth a visit and for €8 for 2 it is good value too.

It is situated down a nice alleyway and even if it is shut it worth a look for its architecture. A very historical building converted from two Gothic houses.
