If You Build It...

...they will come to watch!

This is from Guedelon, a castle under construction in the Puisaye Forest in the Burgundy Region using only medieval materials and techniques. Builders' fictional start of construction date for reference is 1226; the real start date was in 1997. Visitors can see actual construction underway (beware horse-drawn carriages toting logs) and about 300 people per year even participate in the work. Their website has a nice video in English... www.guedelon.com. Go before 2025... when it's expected to be finished...
