In northern Burgundy, a group of enthusiasts decided to take on the challenge of building a medieval castle called Guédelon. They used the methods that were available to 13th-century builders in order to establish a connection between the past and the future of mankind. Using their muscles and the power of horses, builders have tried to follow the plan every year. Wood, stone, and clay are believed to be the simplest materials that still have plenty of benefits.

Thousands of visitors come to Guédelon every year to make their own contribution to the process, both physically and financially. Building a castle from scratch is a true challenge, making Guédelon scientifically and historically interesting.
