Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
Provins was home to the famous Champagne fairs of Europe in the middle ages. These fairs mainly included trading of textiles, fur, spices, and leather. In a time when Europe was struggling to shed its feudal system and thrust itself into the future, these fairs served as the melting pot of traders and artists from all over the continent. They served as a precursor to a united European economy. The Grange aux Dîmes is also another major attraction in the tour. This is an authentic barn from the 13th century. A significant portion of the Wissous peasant harvest was stored here. The Caesar Tower and the surprisingly well-maintained walls are also amazing sights to witness.
As you walk into the city of Provins, it will feel like a trip through time. Many of the city’s monuments are strikingly medieval in appearance. On this self-guided tour, you will get a chance to visit some of the city’s most iconic locations and exhibitions. The equestrian falconry show, Eagles of the Ramparts, is an exquisite display of medieval hunting tradition. This is performed between 2.30 PM and 3.30 PM.
The tithe barn is another interesting location to see. This exotic barn has a large fireplace with a fire that burns almost all year. The massive wooden beams that adorn the Grange aux Dîmes is a sight to behold. The ramparts that were built here between the 11th and 13th century also exemplify the glory of Provins. This is a unique tour that truly lets you explore Provins by yourself with only an audio-guide to keep you company. This is an opportunity you simply cannot miss.
