Pleasant welcome, friendly guide, knows the subject well, listen carefully to understand the history of the fortress, it's impressive, a very good history lesson. Easy access, only downside: no parking close to the site. I highly recommend this site.

Very interesting visit to a fortress in very good condition and very complete. Ideal for children. It's possible to stay for 2 hours, as there's a lot to see: films, cartoon panels, tools...
