  • It was inspiring to learn all war strategies and how they lives in there. Love the storytelling of the castle.
  • Interesting, lots to see. Hard to pick renovations from original features. Worth a visit.
  • Very cool to walk through the old keep. The restoration is impressive. After the keep, you can then walk around about half of the ramparts.
  • Truly amazing! You can imagine a dragon sitting on top of the tower!
  • Interesting place with excellent views from the ramparts and a shop with some good books on the Cathars, and quality gifts.
