The main aim of this Petit Train is to get you to the top of the cliff where the monument and chapel overlook the sea. There is also an interesting 'concrete' aeroplane memorial to L'oiseau blanc - a plane which set off to fly from...More

This Little Train that takes you up to the Chapel on the hill is a waste of time and money. We paid and waited for the posted time of departure. As the time approached they simply changed the departure time on the sign as people...More

For those of us who like choices between climbing and being drive up a good steep hike, it was worth the 12 (I think) euros that it cost for the two of us. The ride up is tres ordinaries. The walk along the top of...More
