  • The guide explains very well the way of life of the men of that time. Children participate a bit, which makes of course. Can also be done when it rains

  • A guided tour very interesting and very well animated with Jerome, who exhibited with passion the history of this cliff and his houses, as well as machines of the time. Ideal for families with children, the curious, and lovers too...

  • Here is a tour not to be missed. It is an ancient medieval village "perched" on the side of a steep wall. No further details: go family!

  • Amazing place and well preserved. Worth a visit. The facilities are great and the food onsite is a bargain.
  • A very interesting site of a former cliff side town. There aren't any structures left, but you can wander through the cliff and look at the fittings carved into the rock and let your imagination fill in the rest.
  • Stunning site of surprisingly rich archaeological significance. Fascinating and well worth a visit.
  • Really amazing views
  • Splendid view! Impressive 'rocky' terrace! Must-see!
