Medieval Festival

Médiévales Embrun 2015 (337) (002)
‘‘ A trip back in time to the Middle Ages
2015 fete medievale ot embrun (174) (002)

invites you to discover lifestyle of the Middle Ages: Medieval camp and market, fencing demonstration, archery workshop, concerts and shows, street shows, bonfires, horse shows, etc.

Head back to the Middle Ages, when our sunny town was most influential, with its archbishop princes who ruled with a firm hand over what was then a fortified city. Embrun had established itself as the ecclesiastical metropolis of a province that extended as far as the Mediterranean. The most prestigious examples are the canonical district where the Tour Brune, the Maison des Chanonges and the Cathedral were built. In the town, the scenery is already in place! Classified fountains, narrow streets, sculpted porches and corbelled houses.

Now all you need is a period costume and you can head to Medieval Embrun!
