      The Adventure of Prehistory in the Middle Ages

      Once upon a time in a legendary valley there was a grandiose millefeuille of stones where dungeons and fortified castle, troglodytes and prehistoric grotto are superimposed on a rocky outcrop in a breathtaking landscape. You will engrave the stone with Cro-Magnon, you will draw with the arch like a knight, you will trace with the pen the poems of courtly love. You will discover the mysteries of Commarque through the games of yesteryear, themed workshops, a thrilling medieval investigation, captivating 3D exhibitions and projections and of course free and guided tours.

    We loved this place and spent three hours total exploring the ruins. The castle has been brought back to life with a lot of love and many details have been added to tell about its past and the people who lived there. The whole place almost comes to life! Especially the caves and information on murals were interesting. Beautiful views around the valley, you can even go up to the tower. Can highly recommend this for history lovers!

    We walked to this as the mid point of a circular walk. Very impressive as you exit the woodland walk and there it is: a part restored medieval castle which gives a great feeling for how a few noble houses were protected by the lord of the castle. Don't drive to it, walk!

    Good history, beautiful place. Staff tried to talk English, but was okay. The guide we bought was unfortunately in France instead of English like they said. But overal beautiful place, with history for not a expensive price 8,80 euros and you spend like an hour and half there

    A LONG walk in from the parking lot takes you to a ruined chateau with little of interest and little explanation of its history and why it is significant. It's an archeological work in progess that...
