The castle is set in a 55ha/136-acre estate, whose lakes and woodland are riddled with paths, making it possible to observe the local flora and fauna at close quarters. High points of the visit include falconry displays, horse-riding stunt shows, gladiatorial combats and reconstructions of amazing battles. In the medieval town and 18C village, stroll amongst craftsmen dressed in period costumes and find out more about their ancestral know-how.
