Beynac et Cazenac is built up the side of a cliff and is on two levels. The castle is at the top (of course; castles always are) and there is a small piece of town outside the castle. The larger part of town is down along the river and you can walk along the river or take a gabare ride on the river, but the most fun is climbing the steps or going up the steep walkways and enjoying the town growing up the cliff.
