Visitors are limited to a single large room of displays of coins from the mint previously located here and models of the castle. There was no possibility to walk around the inside of the building because of security reasons, and no guided tour.

This Château is very impressing and makes you want visiting it. It's a pity that the main part of it is closed for visits as it serves the "préfecture" (administrative jurisdiction). Two rooms are used for a museum that show the rich history of this...More
