Great place with massive history attached. The walk along the Ramparts alone is worth the drive there. Nice assortment off shops and restaurants to make it a pleasant afternoon outing.

This is a fascinating place that us a must visit if you are in the area. We wandered the battlements with the kids (15,13,9,7) and they enjoyed it hugely. The little village inside is also nice with few shops, particularly in the old stables by...More
