Medieval city of Provins

Experience life as it was in the capital of the Counts of Champagne!

The medieval city of Provins reached its peak in XIIth and XIIIth centuries, with the Champagne Fairs.

There  are several shows around the ramparts: Let yourself be transported into the time of knights and princesses! Children and adults alike will dream…

Each element of this show makes it a marvelously authentic experience: the falconers’ costumes, their enthusiasm, the imposing musical themes, and of course the fortified walls themselves.
