Very interesting thanks to the audio guide

Nothing is written in French (English or Spanish) so the audio guide is almost indispensable. There is not too much shadow point so with the heat it's complicated. Otherwise it's really a place to go.

It is very beautiful, the staff very friendly and it is a very nice experience elv
