(4.2/5 based on 85+ 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.

  • During my last visit a Sunday during the summer, I attended several medieval animations which are well structured and carried out by volunteers that makes us understand the life at that time. Tours of the Castle are very well done.

  • 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
