  • I was not especially attracted to be passed several times this medieval castle, it seemed small and does not show a lot of interest. And then we visited... Huge and amazing. In the end a great experience has Advisor. And as a bonus a nice view from the roof. Note a signs not found in all places to visit!

  • 2 times in 2 years I visit this castle, this time I brought small children, they were really appreciated. Pity that the rooms are not furnished. Rooms feature of many location left by the prisoners, they are real works of art, to be found in almost all the rooms. The terrace in good weather allows a magnificent 360 view, of the Mediterranean to the Alps. A visit not to be missed.

  • A beautiful castle in a lovely location. Didn't like the art installations inside, but really enjoyed exploring the rooms, and the view from the castle roof was great. Not cheap for adults, 7.50 euros to get in, but the kids (10 and 8) were free, so not as bad as I thought.
  • Beautiful piece of history and a peek into the end of the Middle Ages. The chateau is completely in tact and just stunning to see. The sheer size of it is impressive let alone the fact it is still standing today. You can visit nearly every room and are able to go onto the roof top to see the surrounding area and the massive Rhone river. The rooms no longer have furniture but the place leaves you in awe nonetheless. You can also visit the small garden that is situated in an interior courtyard. There is also a few rooms with artifacts. Do not miss seeing this chateau/fort especially if you love history and historical monuments.
  • Great King René of Provence castle. A must see in Tarascon, one of the oldest cities in Provence. Beautiful view from the top of the castle, on all Tarascon.
  • Great castle, I find the efforts to make it inclusive to blindsided people is a great gesture...
  • Very nice to Work around with your dog.
