Visit Auvergne: guided tour of Château de Saint Saturnin

MAY 1st to september 15th, 2023

Because of a change of ownership, the castle will be exceptionnaly closed from june 26th to july 13th, and from august 24th to september 4th

The guided tour aims to unveil the historical context of the castle through the major figureheads who have left their mark on it and explain the architecture of this typically medieval fortress and its successive transformations, in particular during the Renaissance.  It also tries to show what daily life was like at the end of the Middle Ages.
The visit -50 minutes- takes place both outside, offering a unique opportunity to discover a magical site and the château gardens, and inside the château with a tour of the Royal Banquet Hall, the furnished private apartments of the Count of Auvergne and the famous 15th century roof beams.

Because of the many staircases and the impossibility of setting any elevator, the access to whellchairs is not feasible. Handrails and the possibility to shortcut the last two levels would help however the slow moving people.
Besides, specific tours could be organised for a group, with proper appointment.

  Dogs kept on alead are admitted but only if they are held by their owners when inside the castle.
