    1. Thanks Johanna
      We walked around mostly the top. I can't remember why we don't have many pics of the inside, maybe because it was too dark or because they did not allow photographs taken inside.
      PS Pls check out Part 1, you'll like some pictures there for sure!

    1. It was fab, still have loads to share of days out to other parts of South of France, so you will probably get bored soon - hope not.

  4. So lovely, and it looks like there weren't too many huge crowds. The stone buildings are amazing and there's a ferris wheel right off the water.
