  • Chateau-Musee de Tournon (Castle-Museum of Tournon) stands majestically on its rock with foundations dating back to the 10th Century. At its foot, there is a maze of narrow streets leading to the historical center of the town with medieval origins. The many mullioned windows testify to the architectural evolution of the building. During the Renaissance, a section of the castle was built specifically to house the town museum, making it a castle-museum.

As you’re left to explore the paths, ponds and plants perched in the middle of the old fortifications in the heart of the city, you will be intrigued by the beauty of the cruise port of Tournon showcased from the garden slopes.
     
  • Marc Seguin Bridge is both picturesque and historically interesting. It was erected over the Rhone River by Marc Seguin and his brother in 1825 with cables. Over the years, a few renovations have occurred since it was destroyed in 1965. Just stroll across the bridge and admire the pleasant sights and attractions in the cruise port of Tournon, France.
