Behind the scene

 

How does the renovation work in a castle proceed? Which trades are involved? Are the techniques used the same as in the Middle Ages?

 

As part of its restoration work, Grandson Castle invites you to discover the know-how of the specialists who work to maintain this exceptional heritage. As the public is rarely invited to understand the complexity of such a project, take the opportunity to meet those who work in the shadow of these venerable stones. Holders of living traditions, archaeologists or art restorers, they present their jobs for a weekend!
