Take a tour guide with you if you wish to see the tiny prison cells and hear the little-known facts about the place. Wear sturdy shoes and lots of bug repellant.

  • Too bad that the site is not maintained at all because its visit which it is surprising that it is open access given the state of total dilapidation of the buildings, is very interesting To document before and get by in the brush

  • A site that could be so interesting from a historical and cultural point of view. Alas, there are no information panels and no enhancements. Vegetation overfills everything. There is still a small layon to get inside and discover the cells.
