Puy du Fou, Les Epesses

The historical theme park Puy du Fou is immensely popular for good reason--it brings periods of history to life through performances of epic proportions. By day, you can watch as gladiators fight for their lives, musketeers engage in swashbuckling sword fighting, and Vikings rise out of the lake on their ship to ransack a village right before your eyes. At night, the main show comes alive behind the ruined castle, depicting 700 years of history. The Cinéscénie dazzles you with its award-winning pyrotechnics and exquisite choreography. More than 1,000 actors, including children and live animals, perform this massive show on an outdoor stage that many boast is the largest in the world. Headphones provide English translations of this and many of the main attractions. Shows sometimes sell out weeks or even months ahead, so book your tickets to the park and the performances well in advance.

  • The shows are visually beautiful, a clever mix between history, entertainment and the pleasure of the eyes! Gone with a teenager and an 11-year-old, they loved both of them. Recommend without hesitation!

  • Little can I add to the lot of positive reviews about Le Puy du Fou. It's just fantastic, we've been three days and we've seen everything, including the two evening shows, the Cinescenie and Les Orgues de Feu, quietly and enjoying our paradyes to savor everything we were watching and gave us time to repeat it that we liked best. You are surprised by what you see, the kindness of the people, how well organized everything is (parking, entrance and exit of important shows, picnic areas, restaurants, the app for which we do not understand French,...). Anyway, it's been a great success to go. Congratulations to all the people who make Le Puy fo Fou possible and ojala Puy do Fou in Toledo becomes something similar.

  • A must visit. Had an exceptional day with the family. The shows are amazing, favorites for us, birds, vikings and lance. Stages and theatre production brilliant. Download the app in advance to help you plan the day and also translate into your own language. Fantastic. Would certainly go back again.
  • I didn't know what to expect, but this experience was truly spectacular. Very different from what you might expect from a 'theme park'. The bird show was my hands down favourite although the night show was a dramatic feast for the eyes. Polished performances by the actors. I've never seen a what-do-i-call-it? spectacle? play? on such a grand scale. I recommend buying your tickets months in advance as they are hard to come by. Went with a group of fellow 30 year old friends and even we enjoyed it, so I'm sure kids would be blown away! The park also offers affordable food and drinks. Puy du Fou has an app that you download so you can experience the shows through english translation - which was excellent when it wasn't cutting out. That's the only reason I've rated it 4 stars.
