WOW!! What a wonderful visit! It’s only 9 Euros to visit the cathedral and castle inside this wonderland. It’s so quiet inside too! Not a lot of tourists, but so close to the downtown of Paris! We spent a few hours here wandering around looking...More

A huge middle ages castle very well preserved. Within the castle, an impressive church. Admission is 9 Euro and is worth it. Very easily accessible with Metro and Bus station just in front of it.

I came to this place with my friends. It’s very nice place to visit. In term of architecture and history ,this is a Marvel and really a treasure in the French. We loved to walk and explore this place. Highly recommend to you.

You can wander around the grounds for nothing. I paid admission 9 euros and all that got was me up a level of the Keep and into the chapel. There's not much there. I would like to have gone to the top of the keep...More
