  • My question is: why not have integrated the Forge Museum? Well it's ruins but not enough sign that could give life because not even an anvil to help visitors. € 5, I find it extremely expensive. Maybe the €6,5 with guided tour would be more suitable but unfortunately not possible during the week.
