  • A true Castle, very well laid out, a true encounter with the Pyrenean story, in a beautiful setting! Take to the skies... with small and large!

  • A very interesting visit to discover daily life in the Pyrenees coupled with a view sublime on the town and the mountain. Only regret that the history of the castle in him even is addressed by the supplied leaflet, even if very well done.

  • We visit with a paper guide. Nice and interesting for all the world but I think I have missed important information because of a guided tour with a simple paper. Well maintained lovely views at the top
