Around Pouzauges Strongholds (Vendee)


The Pouzauges Fiefs are a region rich in arts and culture. There are numerous castles, churches and museums which house art and history collections. In the Middle Ages, the Fiefs were a region of lordships and castles. There is notably the Château de Pouzauges, which is an important historical monument. In the 17th century, the Fiefs were affected by religious wars. Protestants, who are the majority in the region, are persecuted by Catholics. They take refuge in the forests and hills of the Fiefs, where they build camps and fortifications. In the 18th century, the Fiefs experienced a period of prosperity. The region is then known for its vineyards, which produce renowned wine.
