Le Puy du Fou

The must-see theme park in Vendée

You can’t come to Vendée without experiencing Puy Du Fou.
Whether it’s La Cinéscénie or Le Grand Parc, it’s a must-see event that surprises every time. The Puyfollais have taken up the (successful) challenge of transporting us to the heart of history, harmoniously blending adventure, magic and emotion.

We all have our own eras and emblematic characters: boys dream of being a Viking or a knight, girls dream of being Eleanor with her falcons or Margaret with her magic spear… and vice versa.

My favorites:

  • N°1 Le Signe du Triomphe is simply incredible, set in a “real” Gallo-Roman stadium
  • N°2 Le Bal des oiseaux fantômes, magical and spectacular
  • N°3 Richelieu’s musketeers, marvellous and romantic.

My advice: if this is your first visit, it’s now impossible to take in all the shows in one day, so plan your program with a few must-sees and leave some time to wander through the different eras, and let yourself be surprised by the little street shows (the magic show is top-notch!) that you won’t have scheduled.
