    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.

    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.
