The Fortress of Montbazon is also called Fortress "of the Black Falcon" because it was built by Foulque III Nerra.
This site, which was part of the stronghold of the terrible Count of Anjou, overlooks the Indre valley and the town of Montbazon, from the top of its rocky outcrop. The fortress is one of our oldest military constructions. Home to the oldest keep in France still standing, its history extends from the end of the XNUMXth century to the XNUMXth century.
In addition to a particularly immersive guided tour, we discover the trades of the Middle Ages in the form of sketches and demonstrations: war machines in action, weapon master, stonemason, weaver, herbalist, calligrapher ...
The children try their hand at the many medieval games and leave with their diploma as knights of the fortress!
The fortress tavern offers fouées, pancakes, and other delicacies.
