Lectures at Château de Mongenan: Rebellious voices to Portets

Languages spoken


The rebel voices: Evocation of the Montesquieu family, Abbé de Bellet, Parlement de Guyenne, Secondat. Visit to Capian, Cadillac, Sainte Croix du Mont, Commanderie de Sallebruneau. Tourism and walking are often considered pure entertainment. Gone are the days when people were careful “not to sunbathe foolishly”. Today, tours invite walkers to see nothing, understand nothing and learn nothing about the regions they pass through. The Château de Mongenan, which created the Route des châteaux et Cités au cœur d’Aquitaine in 1994, shares Montesquieu’s vision that travel is inseparable from initiation. As a stopover on the path of life, each visit is like a pilgrimage. It allows you to take possession of the space and inhabit it, to understand who you are, where you come from, where you’re going.


Sunday 28 July at 5 pm
