This medieval castle reproduction is like most in the middle age, a fort and the only one of its kind. Visiting this site, you go back in time. You can see the workers and engage in conversation about what they are doing. Nothing better than...More

This is a truly unique tourist attraction, that is well worth visiting. For my son, Guedelon brought Medieval history to life. For me, the chance to see all of the professions involved in the construction of a Medieval castle was fascinating. I enjoyed the freedom...More

This is a place that makes history real for kids. It was really great for them to explore and see the 13th century craftspeople, tools and techniques in action. We caught the Alchemist’s demonstration (kind of a magic show), which was very comical and a...More
