On the site of the Castle of La Barben, during the days of diving into the thirteenth century, you can walk among the camps and medieval market, stopping to see the archers competing, to follow the procession of knights, support your champion in the combats. Around 500 reenactors are coming to live Templars’ times. Highlight of the day is the reenactment of the battle... excitement guaranteed.
The Templars’ camps offer to see the preparations to the battle, weapons, equipment and dressing. The lectures of history of the period are held during the festival to give more explanations to some aspects of Templars’ life. Jugglers, storytellers, musicians and beggars are to be met on the streets throughout the day. At the medieval market artisans offer their goods - leather, stone, pottery, weapons, clothing and other. Entering the other camps you discover the daily life, cooking, herbology, blacksmithing, stone carving, archery.
