Castelroc, the medieval castle of La Roque is located in the upper Dadou valley, a stone's throw from the episcopal city of Albi. Built between the 11th and 12th centuries (Cathar era), it dates back to its Carolingian era. A small path through the woods allows you to reach the rocky outcrop which majestically supports it.
Participation in a collective work, creation of a protection grid (and security) for the castle's cistern
On site, the group will organize itself with the technical supervisor in order to respond to a pre-determined work schedule. the volunteers will be brought to work in team on an achievement according to their level (beginner - expert). So whatever the level of the volunteer, everyone will find a place in the realization of the collective work.
Note: At Castelroc, the site is an activity for visitors. You will therefore be dressed as were the artisans of the 13th century in Medieval Occitania (clothes provided). The immersion, for you as for the visitor, must be total and perfect for the greatest pleasure of all. If you wish to bring your own outfits, we provide the information necessary for the creation of your costumes. Contact us.

The reception of volunteers takes place at the Albi station in the middle of the day on the first day of the construction site or at 3 p.m. at the village gîte.
