Access
Approach to the monument:
There is a road leading to the lighthouse at the NE edge of the island which is next to the fortress. The real challenge is to go to the island which is another story…
Entrance:
Like most remote, ruined and neglected fortifications, entrance is not an issue. The difficult part is to approach the castle and walk around inside.
