Western Heights

On the chalky embankment you will see the elaborate 5km fortifications which rise up from the port towards the cliff named by Shakespeare, amongst which are the redoubt built in 1808 and the magnificent triple stairway of the big well (42m), designed to cope with a possible Napoleon invasion.
