  • It is a huge Castle, but that this quite collapsed. You walk around all the walls surrounding it and you enter different exhibition halls such as the library and others.

  • The visit is worth. The reconstruction of the Castle has been made with enough care and MIME. The entrance is not expensive, I think that about 6 euros and children under 12 years old is free. You need one hour and a quarter or slightly more for the visit around the Castle.

  • 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
