Despite the town's origins, most of the existing structures were created during the Middle Ages. Explore several structures designed by various monarchs, as well as the location where 45 Templars were imprisoned and tried.

  • MORE:-> visit small train-> visit a little Museum of salt. -> Comment of the driver throughout the visit. -> Very nice driver. -> Wonderful view of the castle of acute dead (seen from its length, ability to make great shots). LESS:-> senior speakers of the train are clearly end of life. It is quite complex to understand the driver with all the crackling. Overall, we will not return (we now know). Against the ride is superb, and I really recommend you do once to find out.
