Le Puy du Fou, Les Epesses
(4.6/5 based on 8,000+ reviews on the web)
The historical theme park Le Puy du Fou is immensely popular for good reason--it brings periods of history to life through performances of epic proportions. By day, you can watch as gladiators fight for their lives, musketeers engage in swashbuckling sword fighting, and Vikings rise out of the lake on their ship to ransack a village right before your eyes. At night, the main show comes alive behind the ruined castle, depicting 700 years of history. The Cinéscénie dazzles you with its award-winning pyrotechnics and exquisite choreography. More than 1,000 actors, including children and live animals, perform this massive show on an outdoor stage that many boast is the largest in the world. Headphones provide English translations of this and many of the main attractions. Shows sometimes sell out weeks or even months ahead, so book your tickets to the park and the performances well in advance. Put Le Puy du Fou and other Les Epesses attractions into our Les Epesses itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Since my first visit when I was 6 years old, now I'm 23, I do count even more the number of times where I went there (maybe a dozen times). Being passionate about history, and above all, living history, this is my oxygen of the year, almost a pilgrimage. The great Park, and especially the Cinéscénie, God, just one word to sum this up: PERFECTION.
