    The safeguard project being set up offers the visitor a heritage part with its majestic ruins and an environmental part with its surrounding ecological diversity. A nature discovery trail is being created.

    The presentation of the project is done through guided tours with commentary in the secure parts of the monument and the park. The site can be accessed without great difficulty.
