The ramparts at Montreuil make for a lovely stroll in the morning or evening but the Citadel is a surprising bonus if you get the times right. We visited when the local ornothologist group was observing the swallow migration, not really our thing but the...More

Great place to visit. Very informative and lots to see. There is also bit for the kids to do as well. It’s mainly outside so wear appropriate clothing, I only had flip flops and was expecting nice weather- not heavy rain!
