Chateau de Crussol, Saint-Peray

(4.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
An explosion in a quarry below Chateau de Crussol severely damaged part of the structure, but what remains is a testament to 12th-century architecture and engineering. In the 11th century, the castle was important in controlling transport along the Rhone River. It was lit on fire dozens of times during France's religious wars in the 16th century. Today you can tour the mostly ruined complex yourself all year round, and guided tours are available in the summer months. Make Chateau de Crussol a part of your Saint-Peray vacation plans using our Saint-Peray trip builder.

  • The medieval castle which overlooks the Rhone Valley is located on the commune of St-Peray (07), 5 km from Valencia. Nice ride designed to get to the top, with the possibility to enter the Castle. View on St-Peray, the Rhone, the Vercors, the plain. Theater, with animations and show end of June. Information in the House of the Castle, and possible visits on request. The kids love this place (great also...)

  • One of my favorite places in the Ardeche. You can easily walk around in the area. With some imagination you reconstruct the castle. A lot of elements are still existing (but remain a ruin :-). On top of the castle let you eyes wander around. On good days you can see the Rhone valley, the Vercors and even the Alpes. Simon Visit my website: www.noireblanc.de
