  • Superb construction in edge of the Rhône, the castle of King René is worth a visit. Our guide made us discover the history of the place and its beautiful rooms with beautiful ceilings. At the top, you have an impressive view of the city. Whatever your age, this visit will interest you. Don't miss at the foot of the Castle, the sculpture of the Tarasque.

  • See at all costs. There are beautiful exhibitions in the Castle. At the Summit there are views of the town of Tarascon and bed of the Rhone.

  • The castle of Tarascon is one of the castles that I was most impressed with his height. The visit to the castle is done with or without a guide following the route. Moving from one room to the other and you get to the top to admire the panoramic view 360 °. It's dizzying: it is 50 meters high. This castle has no furniture and is being restored. It is owned by the city of Tarascon. Admission € 7.50. I do not regret the visit, there is little to be empty of furniture, but full of history.

  • 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.
