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.

  • Pretty Castle, we fell on it by chance and out of curiosity we went there. The view is very beautiful, but not big thing to remember of the castle in him even.

  • The restoration of this site is a success. Must take the time to visit the Castle and enjoy very interesting historical reenactments. In addition, the landscape surrounding (the Baronnies) is superb!

  • visit of the castle which is however very well renovated, but there is not much to see except a few gears of war and a few rooms to visit on the heights of the Castle. However, the view is magnificent on the chain of the Pyrenees. Review: very disappointed.

  • It was an amazing tour of the castle from the medivial period. The castle and the historical ornaments and weapons are well preserved. Parking is available and it's free. The town is in a crime free zone, so no worries about being mugged. There's a souvenir shop inside the castle and the lady that works inside the shops speaks both French and English. The place is not full, you get to take your time observing the displays.
  • Amazing view. Fully renovated. Nice for kids as well.
  • Great experience for kids. Plus the view of the mountains is amazing.
  • 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.
