  • I'm sure this is interesting to see in the summer time but dont bother going in the winter. The tourist locations in the old city are only open from 2pm to 5pm. Makes me wonder why they even bother.
  • Authentic medieval village. Well kept and in great state. Not visiting ruins but an actual live village with inhabitants and school. Managed to keep a great balance between the history and daily life.
  • Take your time to listen to the audioguided tour with your headset. Interesting. About medieval economics. :)
  • One of the most impressive stunning medieval building I have ever been.
  • Beautiful building. With audio tour guide, small museum with characters wax telling the old trades of provins. However there is not a lot of scenes.
