Provins is a lovely city situated near the Champagne region. It is 60 minutes away from Paris, the capital city. This town will offer you the unique chance to see how France looked like eight centuries ago. This short foray into the past is going to offer you an amazing experience. Be prepared to discover old churches, strong fortifications and a picturesque village.
You have to explore this town little by little. Admire the symbolic César Tower, the city gates and the towering ramparts (the walls used to measure 5 kilometers; nowadays they’re only 1,200 meters long). All these were built by the Champagne Counts and are the existing proof of their power. Don’t miss Grange aux Dîmes. This is a covered market. Years ago, it used to be the home to trade fairs. During those memorable times, merchants from the Mediterranean Coast and Flanders came to Provins to buy high-quality linens and fabrics. In that historical period, the town had its own money, coined by the locals.
If you find this interesting, then the underground rooms and tunnels will amaze you. Discover them together with your guide. This extraordinary subterranean labyrinth is mysterious and hard to explain. But it’s extraordinary to admire. Both adults and children are welcomed in Provins. This city features numerous shows and festivals. The most famous and popular are the spectacles with medieval themes.
They’re the best way to represent the spirit of this town. Moreover, they highlight the impressive architecture of this place. The equestrian and falconry skills from medieval times are presented to the visitors in charming shows. This takes the tourists back in time and offers them an extraordinary experience. I strongly recommend this off the beat tour. It’s one of the best in France. It is unusual, amazing and offers great adventures.
