We spent the day and evening here with friends, eating, drinking and shopping and it is a nice place to do all. On top of good food and relaxing atmosphere the buildings within the walls of the old city were beautiful.

We stopped at this castle village for 5 hours it was enough time to check out all the things it had to offer. The castle was an extra fee but getting in the walls to the village is free.

This is a truly amazing place, castles, ramparts and towers surrounding some really good restaurants, there's always something new around each corner... Great locals and a dash of Disney too. Not to mention great sausage, beans and duck!
