La Fortezza del Priamar

La Fortezza del Priamar, or Priamar Fortress, is on the edge of the Savona's city center, overlooking the town and the harbor.

Priamar Fortress interior, Savona

The fort, which was built by the Genoese in the 16th Century, served as a military complex and prison before being closed down in the early 1900s. Today, it's a monument and cultural center, with an art museum, the city's Museo Archeologico, a restaurant, and a café.


Playground in Fortezza del Priamar, Savona

The playground is a modern addition to the former prison.


Priamar Fortress hours of operation sign

The Fortezza del Priamar is open daily, with no admission charge unless you want to visit the museums.


Priamar Fortress view of the Mediterranean

The views alone make the Priamar Fortress worth a visit. Here, you can see a ship passing along the coast. (The statue in the glass box is a museum exhibit.)


Savona beach

We took this picture of a Savona swimming beach from the top of the fortress.

We also enjoyed this view of Costa Magica and Savona's port district from the Priamar Fortress.
