  • We loved! Only the right part is to visited, the rate is 10 per person. With free access to several rooms, kitchens La Chapelle and the catacombs shows then a guided tour in libraries where the guide showed us 'treasures' very interesting for the history buff! And where we really appreciate it is at the top a parts with costumes for us disguised with children is really great! fun assured!
