Mediaeval events, discovery circuits, children's circuits, exhibition.
A fortified castle is the perfect example of Middle Age defenses, but how was it attacked? Guided and unguided tours on the theme of war in the Middle Ages- Each day, a trebuchet catapults its projectiles, the cannons roar and armed men present their swords, mediaeval bows, crossbows and coats of mail. Children are given knights' certificates at the end of the "Discovery Game" in which they are put through 12 tests. Activities, an outstanding view of Espalion and the Aubrac, an archaeological exhibition, history and a shop.
