(4.2/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
The Château de Mauvezin is a castle in the commune of Mauvezin in the Hautes-Pyrénées département of France.The site, occupied since protohistory, was transformed into a castrum in the Middle Ages and later into a castle. The castle was built by Gaston Fébus (also Phoebus) around 1380. Following the merging of Bigorre into the Kingdom of France in 1607, it fell into disuse and was dismantled piece by piece, its stones being used for other buildings.Today, the castle is being restored. It is listed as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.

  • Excellent tour of a castle medieval for those who want a focus of fun/history. Very nice renovation that I recommend to those who want a quick and exciting tour.

  • The view is breathtaking on the valleys of baronnies and Capvenr. Mauvezin is a lovely village. The renovated chateua is majestic and is of course primarily to make the turn of the ramparts and enjoy the view to aobsolument visit it. And also to support the action of the associaiton who struggle for decades to save it from ruin. what she knew how to perfectly. Bravo. to visit ba, more s the escaladieu Abbey.

  • It is unfortunate to meet once again in a place restored and certainly launched with a lot of local crowing (Senator, Deputy, president of the C. General, etc.), and of large bills cash BUT for which we feel that sustainability has not been considered. More than questionable maintenance, disastrous rooms sound, inaudible videos and the surroundings of the Castle... I don't even speak. And Yes gentlemen politicians catering budget must also include ongoing maintenance. In summary: travelers go to the foot of Mauvezin, enjoy the silhouette and the geographical location, then continue your way...

  • Great little castle. Lots of interesting information in several languages. They often have extra things going on. Well worth a visit. The gift shop has quality items for sale.
  • Not the best medieval castle you will see, but the view is gorgeous and the surroundings beautiful.
  • Excellent, renovated Castle, attention however to the entrance of the parking lots that are located in a beautiful coast, the castle is quickly made, but the animations are friendly and stakeholders are nice
