Standing on a hill, Fortezza del Priamar is a fortress built in 1542 that was used as a military prison for many years. As you approach the structure, just a short walk from the dock, stop to admire the architecture. Once inside, you will be able to explore the halls and towers, which offer great views over the ocean. There is also a museum dedicated to the history of the fortress. See Fortezza del Priamar and all Savona has to offer by arranging your trip with our Savona online visit planner.
