Take over the history, shoot your film in the fortified castle

The fortress of the dukes of Guise was one of the most powerful strongholds in northern Europe. Anchored on its rocky peak, the medieval keep watches over the city and the Oise valley for more than 800 years! Its tunnels plunge into a world of mysteries and legends.

Here, the spaces inspire bellicose stories where the smell of the cannon mingles with the fear of the enemy, with the sweat of the men who take up arms. In the casemates, the chimneys that were used to evacuate the black fumes of each detonation did not move. In the courtyards and paved alleys of this castle, one can imagine without difficulty lords and knights gathering around a fight or a feast. Along the walls of the underground, there are still a few words engraved in stone by soldiers of another century.

A new scenario seems ready to arise behind each fortification to invade the fortress.
