The battle of Castillon

Saturday, July 23, 2011, from 10:30 pm to 1 am, I attended the beautiful enactment of the Battle of Castillon taking place on seven hectares (17 acres) by over 450 volunteer actors and 50 horsemen. This famous battle between the English and French took place in 1453 and marks the end of the 100 years’ War.

It was a nice popular show (22 euros), meant in the noblest sense, with all this audience and volunteers to experience this beautiful spectacle, the cold night did not even stop me thinking that the show was too short. It made me think that it would be a great idea to recreate a similar event in Saint Emilion during the Heritage Night?
