  • We visited the castle during the exhibition of the photos in January 2017. I have to admit it is a travel history and unbelievable shooting that I could never imagine. The choice of photos and organizing the visit are well done. We are going with our kids and everyone has been enriched by this experience. The price is affordable and worth it to come because nothing that the building it is an exceptional place. To do it without hesitation!

  • Beautiful exhibitions photo still of excellent quality, a mix between the excellence of the Gallery of the Jeu de Paume and the Gallery of girls of Calvary in Paris. A must for photo enthusiasts and others. A center resources well documented that deserves just a bit more of modernism in its installation.

  • This water tower was used to feed the fountains of the city formerly. Today, it host a photo exhibition. You can enter inside (at the entrance of the expo), in order to discover the mechanism and the bowels of the water tower. A beautiful very well preserved monument.
