We went here after visiting Orange. Warm weather, baby on the back and a short steep hill. Once inside the fort it was nice and cool(er). The view from upstairs is beautiful! Worth the money! Also, drive carefully to the parking, it's a narrow road!

Long steep climb, so be prepared. There is not a great amount of structure still in good condition, but what a view from the top! Road up is narrow , so go slow in case you meet a car coming down.

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.

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

We could not miss the Fortress high on the Rock above the village on our way to Orange and decided to stop and have a look. The steep walk up was well worth it. What a gem and to be able to walk around the...More

This is a brilliant location for anyone with children who like playing with swords - they will love it - you will need to buy (yet ) more swords for them to play with. They have brilliant displays in the summer of siege warfare including...More
