Lonely Planet review

At the top of the Chemin de la Corniche, there are lovely views to both north and south from the Montée de Clausen, the cliff-top site of Count Sigefroi’s once-mighty fort. Beneath is the entrance to the Bock Casemates, a mildly interesting honeycomb of rock galleries and passages initially carved by the Spaniards between 1737 and 1746. Over the years the casemates have housed everything from bakeries to slaughterhouses and garrisons of soldiers; during WWI and WWII they sheltered 35,000 locals.
