  • Very beautiful place. With old streets and lots of french shops.There is plenty of restaurants and bars as well. There is a fort which overlooks harbour thats worth exploring that costs only 4 euros. Typical southern france town. Park at the top of the town and walk down as views are spectacular.
  • An amazing Fortress and historic monument which can teach everyone a great lesson about life, religion, idealism and determination that together we can overcome evil
  • Nice little town with typical French flair. Chateau is good maintained. Lots of parking lots, but still not enough
  • Beautiful little town. Great market on a Sunday. Wonderful shops to browse. Excellent restaurants on the harbour/beach front
  • 4 euro or adult..well worth the trip in..guide & map is very limited, need to work on it.. loads of nooks & cranny.. tunnels & great for kids..an hour will get it done..
