The Chessboard of Moussais-la-Bataille

The Chessboard of Moussais-la-Bataille, in Vouneuil-sur-Vienne, invites you to discover the stakes of the famous battle of Poitiers of 732 where opposed Charles Martel and Abd al-Rahman, Umayyad governor of Cordoba.
The course of history is traced back with the help of a giant chessboard on which the public moves from box to box, from drawings to quotes.

Around it, reading tables translated into English and Arabic are devoted to the two leaders who faced each other and to the great civilizations of the medieval world that they represent: the Muslim East and the Christian West.




Gala Dinner in the Castle of Dissay

The castle of Dissay was built on top of an older structure in the late 15th century by Pierre d’Amboise, the Bishop of Poitiers and brother of Cardinal d’Amboise, a minister to Louis XII. It served as the residence for the bishops of Poitiers until the Revolution in 1793.

The Gala dinner will take place in the famous restaurant Ô Dissay.

Michelin Guide’s Opinion:
Le Château de Dissay offers a modern and visually appealing cuisine, crafted collaboratively by two young chefs, Henri Dupont and Stanislas Simonet. You can enjoy this cuisine in an elegant and stately 15th-century mansion. There is also a pleasant terrace located in the castle courtyard.
