La Tour Cesar, Provins

#1 of 17 in Things to do in Provins
Observation Deck · Historic Site
Built on a rocky edge at the beginning of the 12th century, La Tour Cesar protects the former Earl’s Palace and dominates the valley. The building itself gives you a glimpse of the everyday life at the tower eight centuries ago, and the view from the top offers an enchanting landscape view. Be warned that climbing the stairs is no short task, and the passageway can become quite narrow.

In addition, La Tour Cesar is a strong symbol of power for the Earls of Champagne. The keep’s highly complex layout gives it a unique and colossal appearance, making it one of the most original stately dwellings of its time. It used to be a watchtower, a prison, a bell tower, and a place of military retreat. Start your trip to Provins by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • An interesting attraction for sure. 360° views from the mid level and interesting view off the Bells, and Pigeons!, From the top level. 4€30 entrance fee or as part of the 12€ Provins Pass. Be aware.....  more »
  • Provins is worth a half day stop by on the middle age cory and specially in the Cesat Tower. It's a fantastic piece well maintained that keeps a medieval atmosphere.  more »
  • Lots of climbing, but lots of rooms to explore in this mediaeval tower. Surprisingly, it is accessible to the public from ground level all the way into the bell tower. Just a warning: some of the staircases are quite narrow, slippery, and steep.
  • This is the remains of a castle. Really the external walls, towers and walkways. The rooms in the towers can be visited. The towers are quite tall and many steps need to be climbed. It is with a visit and lunch in the local bar/restaurant is great value; be quick they stop serving at 14:00.
