4.1/5 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.

  • 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...

  • Vacationing in the end of September, visit the village of Sarrant Gers: deadly, nothing open and everything just clean. We continue by making a stop in Mauvezin: idem, nothing open, sad and dirty. the garden reserved for poop dog and smells bad. In short avoid these villages late September, it's miserable and not welcoming. One person smiling and friendly to the Tourist Office, Phew!
