Imposing castle nestled in a village of character with a few old buildings, a bread oven, a laundry (pleasantly cool during this heat wave) and a ferradou. Short castle visit (about 30 to 45 minutes) nevertheless interesting. We visit part of the owners' apartments. Renovation over time and finances, respecting the building. A little short, nevertheless it is worth the detour for those who love castles and old stones.

Restoration in progress of an old fortified castle...saved from demolition...worth a little detour to help this family continue to restore the castle. There is a motorway exit and a stopover village...

Delighted to have been able to visit the castle. The couple and their children are charming. The explanations of the young woman were clear and precise. We left enchanted. Thank you ?

Saint Saturnin has a very beautiful castle which unfortunately cannot be visited every day. But the church, the shoeing tool, the wash house and the bread oven are also to be seen. Saint Saturnin is worth a detour

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
