Medieval Festival of Hennebont

Hennebont (Bretagne region)
FRANCE


The Event

Hennebont is situated in Brittany, in north-western France, about 16 km from the mouth of the River Blavet, which divides the town into two parts: the Ville Close, the medieval walled town, and the 17th century Ville Neuve. The old walled town still has traces of its medieval ramparts dating from the 13-15th centuries and a large fortified gatehouse, known as the Porte du Broërec.

For two days, this suggestive location turns into a genuine medieval town. The Medieval Festival, attracting more than 40,000 visitors yearly, recreates the sounds and tastes of the Middle Ages through various animations and shows held by professional reenactors and a medieval market with the craftsmen involved in their activities.
