  • If you like them castles or going with people to which you are interested in the topic you will play give the arm to twist and pass you... Quiet, a visit with videos and taking photos lasts about hour and half price for most of the deadly €6. If you're retired student etc €4. Check out the schedule, evenings open 2 hours at this time

  • The castle is restored almost entirely and a little discreet way and in some cases something out of place. In general is pretty good and worth the visit for the exhibition of books and the codex, which is really impressive.

  • This 12th century castle is a real treat for tourist. Amazingly preserved, it looks over the river 50m below.
  • Beautiful place to visit. The castle is so well preserve with all it's libraries, the dungeons, etc. That one has the sensation of feeling of the Middle Ege's life
  • A place incredible. The castle is amazing with its library about templars, but you can also enjoy the (small) old city, hanging around....
  • This classic castle is a special treat for anyone with a interest in the fascinating warrior monks, the Knight's Templar. The walls are built in a style to allow archers to shoot down through the many openings.
  • A beautifully restored Templar castle. A must see location to visit in the region
