  • Here is a good opportunity to get a great view out over the city. At the same time, there is a good exhibition to see up there. Will certainly visit it again

  • After access by elevator (or walk for the courageous) the discovery of the Castle begins. The latter dominates the city of Lourdes. The rooms are followed and trace the history of the regional life in the last century. Beautiful reconstructions and pretty stagings. All is well appointed and well maintained. The high point, however, remains the wonderful view of the city from the different towers of the Castle.

  • Visited the castle in September. When the weather is nice, a wonderful excursion. On the territory of all very Delish, Avenue houses-architectural designs is just remarkable. Visit the only comfortable shoes! Pavers-coeval Castle + gravijka.
