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.

  • overlooking the village of Saint Peray, with a wonderful view on the Rhone Valley this historic site is to visit weather preferably. Not recommended for people with reduced mobility. Very nice walk in the middle of the ruins of the former village. Interesting for all ages.

  • Walk about 1:00 to travel back in time with a nice share to the imagination, this is probably the effect produced by the ruins of the Castle. Nice view over the plain.

  • 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
