The story goes that this is the only castle in France that was never taken. Besieged, yes, but never taken. This a true walled city, and at the time, had its own king. When you go, make sure you wear good walking shoes. Take the time to move about the whole of the place. Today it is still in operations, that is people live there, work there and sell stuff. Stuff you will want to take home as souvenirs. It is not make believe, it is what it was, a Walled City. Look about and examine the structure. You will see the defenses, the protections. One wall after another. If you have the money you can stay in the Hotel that once was the Chateau. If you go in July 14, you can watch the reenactment of the siege, where the whole of the City is "burned".
