Visiting and browsing

There is nothing to see of the fortress (which, given the controversy over its very existence, is hardly surprising) although the subsequent colonia may be visited. There is a site museum which contains military material which may indeed come from a camp.

Additional information for inclusion may be sent to
(please put fortress site name in the subject line; all other emails may be treated as spam and deleted).
