An extraordinary challenge: building a fortress in XXIth
Guedelon is a public work site where workers are building a Fortress with the same technicals as the ones used in the middle age.
Public, mean this is a safe place.
You see workers, mean you can talk with them.
Medieval technics mean noble materials (wood, stone, iron, clay and lime) and you will understand by looking and discussing.
The all fortress and estate mean : the only place like this in the world, a day you will never forget and for good reasons !
It is totally suitable for families.
