Good views from the ramparts. Museum part closed when we visited. Looked quite small from the outside and entry fee appeared quite expensive. A range of arts and craft shops on site.

The entrance is free. Inside there is a museum (not free) and couples of shops selling souvenirs. There isn't so much to see except the views from the fortress.

Make sure you go when it's open as we could only do the terrace. Nice views but I'm guessing the view from the top of the museum would be great. Nice area where you can see local artisans crafts.

Free in and good views, usually a puzzle on offer for the kids, but you will need French to solve it!
