  • Luckily we had the pleasure of having a guide to explain this citadel of several century . The young student made us go through 2000 years of history in a playful and very interesting way that allows us to understand the site otherwise seen from the outside it is ruins . Congratulations also to the small museum and wafer that accompanies A tip Make the visit at sunset splendid view
