Discovering a great lordly residence…

Discover

The occupants from the Middle Ages seem to have only just left… Furnishing, tapestries, décor bring to life the period of Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany. The wedding room presents the ceremony sealing their union through strikingly realistic wax figures in splendid costumes. A feast, with its many courses, tableware and dishes, is recreated in the banquet hall… The Château of Langeais helps young people learn in a concrete manner about all the facets of the lifestyle of the great lords..
