We visited on a Friday and there were only a few people there. The map was a little confusing to start, but once you find the sequence of signs it gets easier. The climb up and down two towers is well laid out so that...More

Spectacular place, with a magic view on top. A proper visit requires time (not less than 90 minutes, but two hours would be better). DOn't miss this!

We were on our way back from Avignon to Arles and took a more scenic (TomTom!) return trip and came across this absolute delight. How wonderful to see a complete castle instead of ruins. The whole of the castle is available for viewing and the...More
