  • Spent most of one afternoon, and another quick trip to the castle, church, gardens and shops. Amazing and well (self) guided. Fascinated with the history and delivery of it all.  more »

  • Excellent fully preserved example of a Templar Knight 12th century castle. Not too crowded when we visited but get there early. Also be aware that it closes in the early afternoon and reopens late afternoon. Definitely worth spending a few hours here.
  • Small castle of the knight templar. The entrance (castle and garden) is about 5€. Nice view from above the castle. Inside they try to explain what they know. But it seems that they know few things about it. So mostly you visit stones without history. Simon Visit my website: www.noireblanc.de
  • I thought this place was awesome! It was also used as a set for Game of Thrones, so it was really fun for me to see! Very beautiful scenery - perfect for lots of pictures!
  • Nice castle by the Knights Templar built in 13th century. Great views, empty rooms.
  • Nice and cosy castle, without narrow authentic streets full of charm. Many bars and cafes for any taste.
