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.
