Les Arcs-sur-Argens (Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region)
The medieval festival "Les Festes du Castrum" takes place in Les Arcs-sur-Argens commune, known also simply as Les Arcs. The aim of the organizers is to bring to life the history of the medieval city and its surroundings. The whole city turns into the medieval world, through historical parades, “sound and light” performances, medieval market, street theatre, tournaments, catapult and trebuchet firing demonstrations and archery.
Various activities involve the visitors into this great medieval adventure, like handicraft, ancient calligraphy, painting, archery and medieval games. The magnificent “sound and light” show, Flambeaux d'Arcus, offer a nocturnal guided tours and theatrical performances, during which dozens of the dressed actors evoke along the streets and picturesque squares the life in the city in the ages of Ramon Berenguer (Count of Provence and Forcalquier), Hélion de Villeneuve (Grand Master of the Knights of St. John) and Saint Roseline (French Roman Catholic saint).
