Defenses

The lake side of the castle is a princely residence dedicated to all the luxuries of the court.

However, the mountain side is a veritable fortress, with its watchtowers, sentry walk, double ramparts, moat and turrets, with everything in place to prevent attack at any time.

Our “workshop” will take ou back into the castle’s history by using your five senses.

The tour is designed to be fun and participative. Visitors will discover the different aspects of the chosen topic through objects they can handle, images to look at, odors to smell, fabrics they can touch, etc...

Choose your favorite topic:

Everyday life in the Middle Ages
