Chateau de Tarascon Reviews

There is, unlike most castles, not too much changed in the Renaissance, making it still a good picture of a military fortress. And yet have different princes the Castle bewwoond. Superb views of the Rhone and the surrounding area, on clear days (like today) is even the Mont Ventoux visible. A must.

Сам замок особо не интересен. Внутри он пустой, ни мебели, ничего. Ходишь, смотришь на голые массивные стены. Но вот снаружи впечатляет. Хорошие кадры с ним получаются.

But here's the outside is impressive. Good shots with it produces. The top (on the roof), too cool. The beautiful panorama of the city, River and surrounding area. Specifically go there not worth, tembolee near Avignon and Baux de Provence. If you travel, you can drop by for an hour and a half.
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.
Great castle, I find the efforts to make it inclusive to blindsided people is a great gesture...
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.
Very nice to Work around with your dog.
