Skala

Recommended
A long ramp leads to the city's Skala. A beautiful gate opens on to the circular platform, where the cannons of the north bastion were once moved. From here, the superb views extend right over the ramparts and the medina. A stairway heads down the impressive 200m-long wall, where around 20 cannons can still be seen, most of which were cast in Barcelona and Seville in the late 18C.
