This is a perfect place to put a museum. Old castle with space and character. It was nice that the info was presented in English and Spanish as well. We would highly recommend you make this a stop, especially during the Fete des Brodeuses.

A great museum for a quick tour round the history of the area. Lovely to check out the history while in the area. Some lovely costumes etc on display and an interesting building in itself. Pop in for a look.
