Fodor's Review

The hill is topped by an 11th-century château, housing the Musée de la Castre, with its mismatched collection of weaponry, ethnic artifacts, and ceramics amassed by a 19th century aristocrat. The imposing four-sided Tour du Suquet (Suquet Tower) was built in 1385 as a lookout against Saracen-led invasions.
