    Very disappointed by the castle we can't see the Court of the Castle, c is paid so a little disappointed because I expected that. Being able to visit a little more about the pretty Church however really negative about the surroundings of the Castle and l Church who are really very dirty and who feel strongly l urinates corpses of beer, bottles, waste of all kinds lurking everywhere in the outskirts of the city however the old town is pretty

    In the afternoon visited the Castle. It was very quiet which possibly has to do with the fact that 15 August a French public holiday. You enter through the gift shop where the entrance tickets are for sale. A family ticket (2 adults, 2 children) costs 22 euros. The info booklet in English does not amount to much. Wander around and most of all delicious check out the modern art that is shown. Slowly crank up and then on the top floor you can enjoy beautiful views. The route passes through another way down. Our youngest of two found the spiral staircases and wandering by the departing very exciting. A buggy is about the many stairs not convenient to take with you. Entertainment for about 2 hours.

    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.

    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.

    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.
