The Castle of Mauvezin

At the time, this castle locked the Toulouse-Bayonne Road and if you doubt it, the 360° view from the crenellated dungeon immediately restores things. Come and enjoy its majestic panorama of the Pyrenees! 

The inner courtyard of the quadrangular enclosure is a characteristic example of medieval military architecture. It also houses replicas of war machines.
The time of the visit (with a guide in period costume), Gaston Fébus lives again, he also talks about the constraints of his wife’s life and the initiatory rites marking the transition from adolescence to chivalry.

The dungeon, served by a circular path, houses exhibitions.

In summer, every Sunday, jugglers, musicians and acrobats invade the place during shows to the delight of visitors.

Also every year, around August 15, the Medieval Camp takes place which plunges the site into the middle of the Middle Ages and which is now eagerly awaited by the enthusiasts of this time.
