Tour de Crest

Dominating the Rhône valley, the highest keep (52m) from the Medieval Times of France remains the last fortress from the 12th century. From the Feudal Period to nowadays through the jail it became in the 17th century, the Tower invites you to discover nine centuries of history.

A stage design (audio route, models, texts and photos) made to understand the history and the architecture of this wonderful site.
