Practical advice

  • Due to weather conditions (heavy rains and thunderstorms), the visit may be interrupted and access to the site temporarily closed. 

  • This site is being restored.The paths as well as the differences in level do not currently allow accessibility to people with reduced mobility. Arrangements and installations are under study. For your comfort equip yourself with appropriate shoes (rather flat and closed).

  • Animals are not allowed on the site.

Thank you for your understanding.
