Welcome to the city of the medieval fairs

 

This guided tour is for you who dream of getting to know a medieval city that still conserves most of its walls of protection.

Following your expert guide you will discover that the beautiful medieval town of Provins was the economic capital of the Champagne Region from the 10th to 13th centuries. The village became in the Middle Ages a merchant borough of coveted opulence. Composed of a High City (Le Châtel) and a Lower City (Le Val), Provins was at the height of splendor in the reigns of Philip Augustus and Saint Louis, time of the great Fairs of Champagne. 

Walls, high towers, undergrounds and knights make up the programming of the small town about 90 km southeast of Paris.
