The ruins are fairly easy to find and there is some parking. Entry tickets was reasonably priced and free for under 8s. The site involves quite a bit of walking on uneven ground so decent shoes are a must especially if it's been raining. There...More

Amazing ruins spread over a wide area on top of a hill. Only opens after 1400hrs as do most Ruins in France. You can access all towers. Beautiful setting. If you like ruins then this is a must see!
