  • Visited the Castle play in frame "Jours du Patrimoine". Nice building, leaflet with explanation and history. Unfurnished but thereby impressive halls, stairwells and beautiful views from the towers. Unfortunately in some modern art temporary exhibition halls where we so not a fan of his. Very friendly welcome and a recommended with children to visit a medieval castle

  • Very beautiful and very well preserved. The most disturbing: their unpleasant exhibitions in the castle rooms, with some theme completely opposed.

  • After a visit to the castles of leases and Beaucaire I expected to still see a building in ruins. And not well! The monument is very well restored and preserved. The leaflet distributed at the entrance is clear and well detailed. Visit appealed to children: as parts through a veritable maze! A real jewel of medieval architecture where machicolations, gargoyles and loopholes are in abundance. Lack of furniture is forgotten by the establishment, here and there, a few works of local artists. Pity that the King's Chamber is diving in the dark to project an artistic film. This piece should be highlighted with a re-enactment of medieval paper mache and cardboard furniture, why not? My Favorites: the terrace and room to graffiti.

  • 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.
