You have to leave your car in the little village of Mornas and then a steep climb awaits you if you want to visit the castle. Actually it can be quite demanding, especially if the weather is hot. I planned to take part in an...More

Spend a nice couple of hours, young guides with fun animation. Also learned a lot which I didn't expect. Just go, you won't regret.

We visited the fortress with our two children. Despite the fact that the tour was all in French, and we aren't fluent, it was easy to follow and very enjoyable. There is a steep walk up from the parking lot for the fortress, and a...More

You see the fortress high above the motorway. Once you've climbed the steep hill to have a closer look, you step back into a period of time long forgotten. The tour is completely in French, but even I could follow along with some of it....More

Nice views but opens quite late (11am!). English leaflet but tour in French. The walk up from the carpark is quite steep but managable. Quite a small fortress and a struggle to get up to the top of the tower.

Gorgeous forteresse with a fantastic view. Everything inside is very accessible (including all the torture instruments!) and during the summer, there is reconstruction and animation. The hill is a steep climb and it is advisable to do it early in the morning or later in...More
