Charming city with the soul of Provence, with its rich past, as evidenced by its ramparts, is the birthplace of Châteauneuf-de-Gadagne Félibrige, renewal movement of the Provençal language, created by Frédéric Mistral and six other poets in 1854. Châteauneuf-de-Gadagne has always preserved over the centuries its character and originality: first logging town, and winemakers who grow to this day, number of sides of the hill classified Cotes du Rhone.

The village is named after one of his lords, Count Charles Felix Gallean Gadagne, lieutenant-general of the armies of Louis XIV. He was elevated to Duke of Gadagne in 1669 by Pope Clement VI.

The heart of the village, perched on a hill, has the charm of the cities identified by ramparts (12th and 14th centuries), which encircle the castle of the former Dukes of Gadagne.
