Take a tour of this infamous prison. Make sure you do the audio tour, which is free. It provides a very interesting prospective to your experience. Also, book your reservations in advance by at least a week. This attraction has become extremely popular with tourist, especially during summer months. We saw a lot of sold out signs for this tour, but you can take a chance and wait in a long stand-by queue.
