Gosh, the witches are back ...

 

The creation of this witchcraft museum in Berry, an ancient province of central France, is quite an amazing story. In a both magic and feerie ambience, from prehistory through the Middle Ages to the middle of the 19th century, discover the historical world of witches. Within broomstick flying range, an initiatory and sensory journey through an astonishing 1200 square metres maze haunted by the mythical characters, plants and beasts of our countryside.

 

 



 

A persistant murmur in Berry !

 

Witches are not hunted for anymore : the devil of it is that they are ignored ! Despite this tenacious adversity, you can still catch their murmurs stifled by centuries of persecution, near the village of Concressault (Cher).






The Witchcraft Museum naturally nestled in Berry, a province that would just fake indolence. Literature and history conspired to make Berry earn a reputation of addiction to nocturnal rites and other sorcery. The cool valley of the Sauldre which snakes its way from the hills of Sancerrois to mysterious Sologne, naturally shelters this den of witches.


 

Witches no longer have secrets for you !
