    Pretty town. Especially on a sunny day very picturesque. With two large dogs we could not go to a food court at the bottom of the ruin. A downer!

    Nice tour of this fortress in ruins, which offers beautiful views of the village ranked among the most beautiful villages of France and the River (the Anglin). The panels allow us to imagine what must have been the castle of the 11th century until its abandonment.

    Angles on Angelina deserves its name of "most beautiful village of France". The superb views, small streets "out of time" and a castle to visit...

    Very pleasant 40-minute tour. A great point of view on the river Anglin and his city. I appreciated the reconstitution of the city in miniature with the presentation of 5 minutes through a play of light.

    When I was 25, I had the happiness to make small films "anguish" in these so picturesque ruins, with a bunch of friends. We thought filmmakers, it was fun!
