  • Great experience in this well preserved and well maintained Castle. The tour is very informative and contains a lot of history about those who lived there and built and extended this magnificent structure. It is a nice place to visit for families or, if you are a Pilgrim, to learn a little more about the Templars. There is a library too.
  • A must see place of great history about the Knights Templar. No longer than an hour and a half. Very interesting to see it still well preserved. A shame no Guided tours to learn more about its history.
