Only decayed towers and fragments of the chapel remain today, but the château brings feudal times back to life is with its menacing set of life-sized siege engines.
These include a ballista (a kind of giant crossbow), a mangonel (a bg catapult) and, most excitingly, Europe’s largest trebuchet: This huge machine is loaded up and launched several times a day during the summer.
There’s also a replica medieval forge, where a blacksmith will show you how to craft swords and axes, as well as swordplay and archery demonstrations.
