Les Médiévales des Baux : à l'aube de la Renaissance

Les Baux de Provence - History - Sciences - Technology - Du 1er avril au 31 août, tous les weekends, jours fériés et vacances scolaires

Dans le passé, le Château était le centre politique et social de la cité des Baux. Plusieurs animations et ateliers vous dévoilent la vie quotidienne et les métiers au Moyen-âge. Découvrez aussi les arts du combat avec le tir à l'arbalète à tour ou à épaule, armement et tir à la catapulte.
Les weekends du 8 mai (du 6 au 8 mai), de l'Ascension (du 25 au 28 mai), et de la Pentecôte (du 3 au 5 juin), des ateliers supplémentaires vous présentent l'univers fantastique évoqué dans les oeuvres de Giuseppe Arcimboldo et Jérôme Bosch.
