It is a marvellous example of military architecture of the age of gunpowder, with an angular, linear, voluminous construction, and internal tunnels. On the top of the New Fortress there is a Bar .This fortress, being smaller and different that the Old one, has its own stories to tell you , since it confronted with success the last attacks of the Ottoman army to the Gates of the West.
It was here that on 9 and 10 August 1716 the most glorious moments of that part of history took place. It was here that in the morning of 11 August 1716, the guards saw that the Ottoman camp had been abandoned, the siege had been terminated and they spread the good news to all the Western world. This event is still celebrated to this day .
Here you can also find the Ceramics Museum
The view from its top is worth seeing. At the Bar in the New Fortress, with a view over the Old Town, you can enjoy a refreshing drink until late at night
