The medieval festival of Chinon

In the heart of a medieval camp, relive the time of Eleanor of Aquitaine

Do you have a warrior's spirit? Experience the thrill of a horse show or simply chat with a knight.

Stroll between the craftsmen's stalls, stop to sample medieval cuisine, admire the work of a goldsmith, watch some funny juggling performances or be charmed by the sounds of oriental music!

Three days of activities and shows for the whole family, presentations in French but very visual!

Catering available on site.
