  • Built in 1400 in 1435, this fortress testifies to the desire of the Dukes of Anjou, counts of Provence, to maintain their authority over the territories of the North and South Italy. Today, she is the medieval fortress best-preserved of France. There are its majestic State rooms, its elegant courtyard and its old rooms of prince, but also more than 30 rooms that are available for visitors. A discovery of the castle in 3 steps: Garden, Rhône and side city.

  • 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.

  • 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.
