  • Very nice Castle overlooking the Rhone. Very nice view and lots of animations and interesting exhibitions.

  • One of the castle the best preserved of the XIV but whose roots go back to the low average age. Castle of the good King René, rich in legend, tale of Anjou and Provence and replica of the Bastille. Museography is pretty poor, but many exhibitions are organized and thematic tours relevant and interesting. Do not miss the graffiti left by the prisoners (last inhabitants of this Castle) and especially the view of the terrace to almost 40 m high! Closed in times of strong Mistral...

  • Visiting near Tarascon, and this was a nice strong tour and who don't take too long, about 1 hours. By-cons thought to cover up warmly if you had wind; because it is deadly.

  • The castle was very beautiful. It was in excellent shape.
  • Fantastic preserved Chateau a must visit do not miss the old parts of Tarascon
  • The most: very nice and great castle with a lengthy guided tour passing through the "roofs" with a great view. A beautiful garden in the inner courtyard. Cons: visited parts are completely empty. We would have liked to find at least representations (example: drawings, engravings...) parts such that they were furnished and occupied, in order to project themselves into the history of the Castle.

  • The exterior does not imagine the beauty of the Castle and the terrace provides a wonderful panoramic

  • Beautiful ch ^ Castle of middle age. Nice tour in the 15th century, unhappy that there was no more furniture and stagings. On the other hand, must wear good shoes you have to climb four floors, but the effort worth it, an incredible view of Tarascon, the castle of Beaucaire etc. A must see.
