Fodor's Review

The walls of the city castle were uncovered when the car park under the Plaza de España was built. The site is now a museum that includes an 18th-century cannon, a shot from which reputedly cost Britain's Admiral Nelson his right arm in an attack he led in 1794. Entrance to the museum is via a stairway opposite the lake.
