Rendez-vous to Guédelon, a castle in the making Départementale 955 89520 Treigny fr

Deep in a secluded woodland, an abandoned quarry reveals a landscape seemingly untouched for a thousand years. Out of this wood and stone, using 13th century building techniques, a castle is being created.

Guédelon is a castle in the making. You will be transported back in time to a medieval construction site and meet the team of castle builders: quarrymen, stonemasons, woodcutters, tile makers, carpenters, blacksmiths, basket makers, rope makers, carters, and their horses.

In 2013, the team will continue building the chamber on the great tower’s second floor, as well as continuing work on the two corner towers.
