The terraces of the fortress will not be outdone with participatory workshops led by our characters straight from the Middle Ages.

The medieval weapons

In the form of a workshop held by our medieval characters, you will familiarize yourself with the weapons of war from the time of Fébus: the bow and the crossbow. It is matter of prestige, speed shooting, materials, anecdotes battlefield ... and many other things!

The size of the stone

Located at the foot of the famous round tower which is the pride of the Counts and of the Castle, you will discover, during this participatory workshop, the secrets of medieval builders: knotted rope, mallet and chisel, workman's marks and so much more. ! The walls have not finished talking to you.

The medieval forge

During this demonstrative workshop, it will be about iron, fire and hammer ... all with noise and smell! In this true medieval forge, we operate the bellows, we put the blushing iron and we shape the instruments which will then be used by the stonemason or the crossbowman.
