Thank you for your understanding.


The site is accessible throughout for children and families are very welcome at the Royal Fortress of Chinon.

For children, a visit to a medieval fortress is always a source of imagination and adventure.  Models and other mediation tools can be found around the Fortress, to accompany them in their discovery.

Activities and Histopad help younger visitors to develop their curiosity and share it with their family.
