This was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. I'm also super impressed by how forts are built and the precautions that were taken in terms of fortifying themselves against enemy forces. The tour guide also took us on a little roundabout tour of the internal caverns that soldiers were posted in to hear if enemy troops were trying to dig their way into the fort. Quite the tight fit in those tunnels, I'll certainly say that. The fort is one of the largest, fitting several other more well known forces within it. Plus it was quite picturesque surrounded by all those sailboats!
