  • He is a former fortified site in which lived the Knights of the order of Malta. This kind of site is original and unusual. The tour is free within an hour. I advise you not to take the audio guide € 2 because he says exactly what is on the panels. This site is of course to visit when it is not raining. In addition, most of the parties dug in the cave by humans are very narrow. This site gives a pretty panorama on the Valley. The only flaw of the site is that there really trace of the man. I got the impression to visit ruins and it is very difficult to imagine what was there before. It is for this reason that I put 4/5. This site is suitable for children who will be captivated by the many fake animals posed in scenery so that the feeling of being in a giant maze embedded in the rock. The young woman has the host was very nice and friendly. Toilets are available at the box office.

  • I am very surprised by some negative reviews. This site is a natural site class, laid out on a cliff. SO, don't go drunk, on crutches or in rainy weather or if you hate the story, that's obvious...! It's a place certainly deserving of a more entertaining than the passive style and simple plastic animals that populate the emptiness of the scene. But these statues are appreciated by children who are so motivated to climb the 500 steps (for they are a little used... of course!) The host was very clear and accurate on all these points. The price seems high in view of the proposed animation and it is clear that an activity would be a more useful: baking bread at the bakery, actors in costume, in high season anyway. The site is clean tidy and the view is sublime!

  • We went on the site of Jonah with 4 children 4, 7, 10 and 11 years old. All the world found his happiness and interest in this visit. This enabled them to become aware of the life during the feudal period in this region of France. Besides having to walk allows them to blow off steam and to have a physical activity in addition to brain activity. Good location and Nice staff to give you information
