Anchored on a rocky peak since the 13th century, the Château de la Roche is the emblematic monument of the Loire Gorges, because of its improbable location overhanging the river.

A new interior layout, redecoration and a new narrated tour await you to discover or rediscover this exceptional heritage. Now...
the other side of the picture is also surprising! The Château de la Roche reveals the history of its walls to you during an original interactive narrated tour.
Furniture, way of life... The former occupants receive you in their finest apparel and invite you to join them on a journey mixing the imaginary, playful and educational memories. Starting from surprising true anecdotes, discover the evolution of the interior from when the Château was built, in the 13th century, to the modern day. Designed to encourage the pleasure of discovery and interactivity, the narrated tour relies on scenography using the tricks of the theatre: decor, acting by the guides and proximity to the public. Five show rooms, making reference to the key periods in the history of the Château, make up the journey.
New: Every Wednesday afternoon, invite your friends to your birthday party (for children from 6 to 12).
Drinks with entertainment: Every Friday evening in July and August on the terrace.
Throughout the year, temporary exhibitions are held as well as various events.
