Located in the heart of the Vosges, in the Grand Est region, the castle of Fontenoy-le-Château is at the origin of the birth of the city that welcomes it today. Originally, it is a large square tower built in the eleventh century by the bishops of Toul to protect the passage of the valley of Côney. Considered as one of the first fortresses of the southern Vosges, the building will be strengthened in the second half of the fourteenth century, and at the end of the sixteenth by Philippe de Croÿ and Diane de Dommartin.
Located at the top of a rocky sandstone outcrop, it is protected by strong natural slopes on most of its faces, which was once a difficult place to take. Today in ruins due to its dismantling in the seventeenth century, he saw his stone used for the construction of hotels. You can still admire the remains of the dungeon which have experienced a restoration campaign in the course of the 2000s.
On the occasion of the medieval festival, at the beginning of July, guided tours are proposed, as well as a banquet, stands of craftsmen, or historical re-enactments.
