Fodor's Review

Parts of the town ramparts and the much-restored Tour des Fromages (or Cheese Tower, now home to the tourist office) also remain intact. You can ascend the 11th-century defensive tower to take in stellar views; an “augmented reality” gizmo at the top lets you picture the scene in all its former glory.
