There was a good view from the ramparts but not much else. It was also expensive in comparison to anything else.

Fantastic medieval Arab stronghold once the local HQ of the French Foreign Legion. Walk around it form the outside and inside to get a real feel for it. Unfortunately the vendors of the medina, which it now houses obstruct access to some of it.
