Come rediscover the renaissance atmosphere!
Since 1986, every 3rd weekend of September, the town of Puy-en-Velay regains its Renaissance colors. The city uses an ancient and authentic archery competition as an excuse to immerse itself in its glorious past. For four days, priority is given to street performances and the reconstruction of daily life in the XNUMXth century in Velay. Canvas camps, struggles to the sound of cannon, mercenaries out of pay, itinerant artisans, period cuisine, pilgrims leaving for Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle make up a real living decor.
