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.

Lovely little town to visit on an evening. Sleepy but very pretty. A couple of quiet restaurants. Shame about the local lad blasting out music wherever we went. Maybe he doesn't like tourists?!
