Knights & Damsels

In the Middle Ages Aquitaine was the battleground of the French and English. In this era the Bastide villages like Villeréal, Monflanquin and Monpazier originated with their characteristic town squares in the middle of the village. At these typical squares markets are held during day and evening time. In August these squares are the stage for Medieval fests: Knights and damsels join in the streets together with jugglers and musicians. The whole village is transformed into a true Medieval feast where you can enjoy drinks and food and games for the kids in the Medieval way.
