Below the Citadel
In an ancient abbey, the Atelier du Livre invites you to join a workshop that will introduce you to the traditional trades and techniques behind books. Discover the magic of colour contrasts by making your own sheet of marbled paper, and experiment with typography and engraving. Tours available in English!
And in summer
Whatever happens, don’t miss the Knights’ Tournaments held in the Bailey, close to the Saint Nazaire Basilica! In this spectacular setting, the Knights battle it out to the sound of horses’ hooves and clanging weapons!
