The designer of the 17th century defence fortifications is architect Erik Dahlberg. A total of seven bastions were built: Honor, Gloria, Victoria, Fama, Triumph, Fortuna, and Spes. There were interior rooms (cells) in some of the bastions. In the 1930s, tours were organized there. During the Second World War, the local residents used the cells as bomb shelters. Work has been started to dry our and light the bastions.
Really interesting to hear the history behind all of this. If you get a chance, try to find a local or a guide to tell you about the bastions and the castle. Make sure you go during the summer too...
Bastions are visible in most of the town - not pretty or anything, but when you read the signs and the history, they are very interesting.
