On Saturday I returned to the middle age. There was a very beautiful medieval festival in the court and around the castle of Corroy le Chateau. It was built between 1220 and 1230 and is one of the best-preserved medieval buildings in Belgium, with gigantic round towers and a moat. The parc around measures 12 hectares.
The castle its entrance and the horse stables
The court inside the castle where the different shows took place
and in the parc in white tents
Artisans and craftmen showed their know how
Of course there was also a lot to eat and drink and quiet a lot of Belgian beers were represented
The reader and the writer
sausages and cheese
A fight with swords
a fashion show of the 14th and 15th century. I noticed that all men wore dresses or skirts !
There was a couple showing their falcons
and another one their pythons. The white snake is an albino python, very soft skin, I petted it.
and from all what I have seen this owl (?) impressed me the most ! It had such big orange eyes, that they almost look photoshopped ! but I swear they really had this color !
The castle and the parc around seemed so beautiful to me that I will go back there. The castle is still furnished and you can visit it on Sundays.
