The Last Great Battle of the Hundred Years’ War
A little history
After three centuries of English presence in Aquitaine, since the time of Eleanor, the French king Charles VII decided to reconquer the province. For the first time on a battlefield, the power and precision of artillery decimated the troops of the English general John Talbot. The Battle of Castillon marks the decline of chivalry and the end of the Middle Ages.
On the 7 hectares of the grandiose site of the Château Castegens, in Belvès-de-Castillon, 400 volunteers and 40 horsemen retrace the great epic of the English Aquitaine. Thanks to important artistic and technical means, it is a great page of the History of France that unfolds before the eyes of the public.
