3. The Center of the Arthurian Imagination in Concoret

In order to be truly unaware of the legends of Arthur and his faithful knights, we head to the Château de Comper! Built by the father of Viviane (the Lady of the Lake) and housing a crystal palace invisible to the naked eye created for her by Merlin, this lofty place has today become the temple of the legends of the Table Round with the installation within its walls of the Center of the Arthurian Imagination.

Art exhibits and set designs, workshops, lectures, storytelling walks, animations and shows rich in emotion follow one another to bring these mythical heroes and creatures to life and thus make you forget the border between stories and history.
