There was a show going on the evening that we were there so we could not enter the Castle. However in the moat there a great number of Deer who are lovely to watch.

We were lucky to arrive 5 min before the guided tour. Visiting la Ciudadela at the end of a foggy day it was magic. the tour was around 40 min and they guide you through the main parts of the building.

The Citadel is massive and makes a good circuit for a post dinner walk (about 45 minutes) with the late birds(Swifts and Martins) and early bats(not sure), a pleasant experience.

The must see is the amazing military dioramas of over 34000 miniatures mainly made from lead. These were created by volunteers from the local council and the ministry of defence. Also worth seeing is the museum of the Pyrenees division of the army. All this...More

Very impressive pentagonal shaped fort with a huge moat (dry now) all around. We missed getting inside by about 5 minutes. I hear that they have a huge display of miniatures. We arrived at the gate about 7 pm as the last people walked out...More
