Lovely places and lovely town. Located approx 100 km from Paris. We can use train to travel there from gare du nord.
It's a unique place to visit. The history of the place place is unusual, I def recommend to know more about it with the friendly guide in the information office. There are also two museums that unfortunately were closed that day. In the caves there are also paintings exhibitions. Loads to learn in this place.
