From Avignon, on the other side of the Rhône and from even farther away, you can clearly see the fort standing proudly. But it is only once you are there  that you can fully appreciate  the strategic position of this fort dominating the Rhône valley. From the top of its parapet walk, you can observe the Popes 's Palace across the way, the Philippe IV le Bel tower, the saint André abbey encompassed within the fort's defensive  walls, the chartreuse's monastery in the village below and the entire surroundings countryside. 

You can walk among the vestiges of the old medieval village and the chapel, visit the fort's buildings and rooms that have remained intact and learn about the aspects of military life from the Middle Ages up to the french revolution.
