Discover Chalabre castle France

"Hear ye, hear ye! Lords and Ladies, Princes and Princesses, the Seigneur of Chalabre invites you to his castle for a day of libations and festivities! Lower the drawbridge that all our future knights and nobles may enter the medieval world of 'Les Chevaliers du Kercob' and their participative historical leisure park".
Thanks to the multitude of activities on the site, complete immersion in its medieval world is assured for visitors large and small, who can try their hand at a number of diverse techniques including calligraphy, smithy work, heraldry, iconography, archery, making coats of mail, medieval dancing and medieval story-telling.
Once you have learned these first skills, follow the crowd pressing forwards to see the knights vying for glory on the jousting field.
These daily activities provide the opportunity to witness medieval horse riding games and tricks, dressage, the training of horsemen and women and, the ultimate honour, the dubbing of one of the children in the audience!
The other riders, not lucky enough to be elevated to the rank of a Knight in this way, need not worry. They will still have the opportunity to master their fighting technique in the weapons room before heading through to the second floor of the dungeon, where a dozen or so costumes are on display, tracking the changing styles of clothing from the time of Gaul through the Early and Late Middle Ages, Renaissance times and the French Revolution.
All in all, no fewer than ten participative workshops are held in the castle (calligraphy, pottery, spice in the Middle Ages, heraldry, painting, basket-making, making coats of mail, the life of women in the Middle Ages, the weapons room, historical clothing) and park (archery, smithy work and the medieval garden).
