  • Very interesting, you learn a lot of things and everything becomes mystery and intrigue. Time stops and one begins to dream and to imagine the history... However the proposed for the visit n tablet is not essential. Beautiful little village

  • Stroll through the streets of this town full of legends and admire the stunning views from the Magdala Tower a sunny day is... wonderful. Magical. The history of the place is interesting, there are a couple of shops and a good restaurant. Visit the Museum Berenger Saunière without fail! A beautiful not-so hidden gem of the Pays Cathare.
