Located on a hill over the city of Montélimar, the castle is an outstanding example of Roman architecture in the South of France. This 12th century medieval palace is made of a fortified enclosure, noble living quarters with remarkable arched windows, a tower and a Roman chapel.
Belonging to the Adhémar de Monteil family, then to the Pope, the fortified castle is turned into a powerful citadel at the end of the 16th century. Turned into a prison from 1791 to 1926, it is listed as an heritage site in 1889 and acquired by the Drome Department between 1947 and 1955. Today, the chateau hosts exhibitions, shows, conferences
