  • Very nice ballad, lack can be simply written explanations seen that admission is charged. My son asked me a lot of questions that I couldn't answer. Too bad!

  • The turn of the ramparts begins with a visit to the Tower of Constance. I followed the guided tour, who taught me the details I didn't know. However, the history of the confinement of the protestants, men and women afterwards, well documented, deserves a more specific development. I am well aware that this painful history is not always nice to hear for is not a protestant but the "walls" sudden two centuries besides persections, deportations, executions and galleys are just mentioned. The turn of the ramparts allows a panoramic view of the city and its surroundings. Beautiful walk to achieve rather weather and no wind.

  • The view from the ramparts of the city and the salt is really beautiful! You can circumnavigate the very pretty old town and enjoy historical explanation to the scene in the towers. Very nice souvenir.
