The circular patrol road that passes along the covered walls of the Castle in Eglet has still managed to retain the traces of old wall paintings that used to adorn them earlier. The main tower at the Eglet Castle houses a wonderful museum that harks back the Eglet's history and the development of wine making in the region.
