The tunnels are very narrow. If you're claustrophobic beware. The visit to the catacombs is a bit short (10-15 minutes) because the Napoleon troops exploded a... More

An interesting attraction for the city. Well done, some parts to visit inside, some outside. You have the possibility to go down 70 meters under the earth in a well!

A very interesting site that allows you to learn and understand Saint' (and Europe's) interesting and complicated history. At the top of the castle you can admire the most beautiful views from the city.

Its not worth go inside to see a destroyed castle. The view is free. We saw families giving up because of the ridiculous fee
