FORTRESS OF MAUZUN
CHATEAU OF MAUZUN 2014
The Giant of Auvergne : a 13th century fortress, rare testimony of the Middle Ages military defence still there for us to see : 3 surrounding walls, 20 towers, some 2000 m of walls ; one of its time main strongholds, erected on a volcano by the bishops of Clermont, Lords of Mauzun, beside the Count the most powerful lords in Auvergne.
A visit out of the ordinary, both scholarly and fun, led by a guide-lecturer who will make alive again for you the dozed off walls of the fortress ; a visit that even the less enthusiasts towards the History and the architecture will appreciate ; an in situ lesson in medieval military strategy in a grandiose panorama.
