Battle of Castillon

A great summer spectacle in Aquitaine is the re-enactment of the 15th Century Battle of Castillon between the French and English at Castillon-la-Bataille to the east of Bordeaux (33 Gironde, Nouvelle Aquitaine).

Performed on a natural arena encompassing 17 acres, within firing range of the original battle ground, 800 volunteers, including 500 actors and 50 horseback riders, re-enact the Battle of Castillon.

The two captivating hours, filled with stunts, special effects and explosive expertise are combined with the everyday life of the Middle Ages, rural scenes set in a farm or an inn or by the well, scenes from the grape harvest, shooting parties and market day with street sellers and a travelling dentist!

The dates are  on selected nights from 19 July – 24 August 2019
