La Tour Cesar, Provins

(380+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Built on a rocky edge at the beginning of the 12th century, La Tour Cesar protects the former Earl’s Palace and dominates the valley. The building itself gives you a glimpse of the everyday life at the tower eight centuries ago, and the view from the top offers an enchanting landscape view. Be warned that climbing the stairs is no short task, and the passageway can become quite narrow.

In addition, La Tour Cesar is a strong symbol of power for the Earls of Champagne. The keep’s highly complex layout gives it a unique and colossal appearance, making it one of the most original stately dwellings of its time. It used to be a watchtower, a prison, a bell tower, and a place of military retreat.

  • Enter this building is to walk in the footsteps of our ancestors who built and lived in this imposing Tower full of history. At the top the view is breathtaking and we like to dream, feeling almost his cloak float in the wind while a sword weighs on your belt, staring toward the horizon to watch riders riding at heels... Heady stuff!

  • Brochures in Spanish are delivered to the entry. The Tower reaches up to the Bell Tower. The stairs are very narrow. Descending is shown a short film on the tower.

  • Can be a bit expensive for what it is but I still do not regret. The view is worth a visit! Access to frames, nothing that this deserves moving. Difficult for younger and less nimble feet.

  • Great views on the area. Great efforts made for some historical comprehension of the place. No need to be claustrophobic if you want to go up in the tower. But really, just do it. :)
  • Very nice Town with a very interessting Tower. This old ancient Town has a magic flair. You have to see!
  • Really cool!
