Montbazon Fortress

Montbazon Castle is among the oldest in France and takes visitors back to the Middle Ages for a day with lively tours of the working war machine, introductions to period trades at demonstrations, interactive and creative workshops.


In 991, the monks of Cormery complained to the King that «The Black Falcon» (Fulk Nerra) was building a keep on their land at Montbazon. It was the beginning of fortified castles in France.
