    The remaining tower of a medieval castle. Ground floor and first floor host a short exhibition explaining the story of the castle in it's surroundings. You need to pay a small fee to access the top terrace of the tower which offers an amazing view on the region. Nice way to get a feel for the area's geography and history.

    At the top of the Hill in town. Excellent example of an old Château. Partially restored. Inside you can pay around €4 to go up the tower to the roof. Well worth it. Very steep stairs. On the way up you can see where the floors used to be an the fireplaces. A small heavy door at the top takes you out onto the roof. Fantastic views. Make sure you lock the door when you leave the roof.

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by Mazepa12 (London, United Kingdom) on 19/09/2013

    Well worth a visit. The climb to the top is hard but the views of the town and away to the Pyrenees are fantastic.
