    A castle adjusted on a limestone spur whose access is through a "cave", and a very particular Dungeon that is worth a visit. A plus for the audio guide (flashlight and comment) bi-fonction perfect for the visit and for the very friendly hostess Corinne. who knows his subject and we advised a great restaurant 500 m (above).
