Provins

The medieval town of Provins is just 38km from the campsite and a must-visit for explorers and history lovers.

The town of Provins has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2001 with lots to visit, entertainment, events, festivals and more.

Explore the town’s ramparts and fortified gates built between the 11th and 13th centuries. The Tour César dungeon embodies the power of Champagne’s counts in the Middle Ages. You can visit La Grange au Dîmes which traders used as an indoor market during the great Champagne Fairs. Explore the underground cellars which still exude mystery about their use in the Middle Ages.

The daily events staged by the town of Provins delight holidaymakers and visitors. Watch a falcon and horse show at the Théâtre des Remparts and see the many species of birds of prey playing with the horses, wolves and camels. With so much to see and do every day in Provins, the town truly deserves its place on the UNESCO list and is certainly worth a detour.
