La Cité Médiévale
Between shows, take another trip through time within the walls of the Cité Médiévale - the attention to detail and realism is astounding. You’ll learn all there is to know about the Middle Ages and ancestral know-how preserved by our craftspeople. The Cité Médiévale is made up of a collection of buildings inspired by the 11th to the 15th century. The authentic mud walls, ramparts and castle gate, the Roman chapel and period shops will all take you on a journey into the era of the knights!
A town brought to life by the craftspeople
Just like the other villages of Puy du Fou, here we would like to showcase the ancestral know-how of the craftspeople. As you stroll along the narrow streets of the village, venture inside the various stores and discover the world of our craftspeople, who use techniques that have remain unchanged for centuries. Come and meet the “Talmelier” (baker) with his delicious bread, the cooper, the master glassmaker, the saddler, the copyist-image maker and the potter ceramist. You can also admire the work of our enamellers, as well as the sculptors who work with either wood or stone!
A gourmet treat at the heart of the Middle Ages
Among the stores in the village, there are restaurants offering hot or cold meals, so you can treat yourself to a well-deserved break! At the “Taverne”, taste the specialties to share: the Véndée garlic bread or Arthur’s platter. At the “Estaminet”, opt for a salad or sandwich, for a quick bite to eat!
