Tournon-sur-Rhone tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
Tournon acts as a gateway to the Ardeche and lies at the foot of granite hills which rise up from the Vallee du Doux.
A pretty town with wide tree-lined avenues it is proud of its historical heritage and 11th-16th-century chateau which houses a museum of local history. To the north of the Grand Rue on Place St Julien lies Collegiale St Julien with its imposing bell tower. It serves as an example of the Italian influence on architecture in the area in the 14th-century.
Tournon is a great place to sample some of the delights of the Ardeche such as roasted chestnuts. Across the river you'll also be able to visit the village of Tain l'Hermitage with its steeply vineyards producing some of the most costly of the Cotes du Rhone wines (white and red Hermitage).
Tournon is also the ideal spot for outdoor enthusiasts with walkers, cyclists and riders being richly rewarded by the surrounding countryside.
