An Equestrian falconry show unrivaled in Europe & one of the finest aviary in France ! Take a flight of fancy…in the open-air Ramparts Theatre of Provins and let’s tell the story of falconry through various cultures… A splendid aerial ballet of birds of prey, in perfect harmony with horses, wolves and dromedary is waiting for you. From the origin with the arabian falconers to the kazakh eaglers, from the medieval feudalism to the fantastic, visitors will follow the birds of prey through these changing worlds and fall under the spell of their aerial feats. During the show you can see several species of birds : eagles, hawks, buzzards, kites, vultures, caracaras, owls and secretary birds... After the show, visit one of the greatest aviary of France with a hundred birds of 30 different species !

The show is very interesting, with lots of different birds and even camels, horses and dogs. The animals are beautiful and looks like they are well treated and cared. This is why I gave 4 stars to the attraction... There are, however, several things that could be better: the first one is that, when it's raining (what was my case),... More

I think if I had been with my kids it may have been great just to see their faces glow with these amazingly well trained creatures. Eagles, falcons, owls even buzzards, beautiful horses and more. Had I been able to understand french a little better, it would have been much better.

Very nice show, and amazing setting. I have fallen in love with Provins and will return. The whole village has a certain feel to it that I can only put down to the history of Provins.

Hour-long raptor presentation, with costume changes, some horsemanship, a camel, and an extremely docile wolf. Our kids loved it, even though they could not understand much of it (it is in French, and translations are not available). Highlights included the falcons, the owls, the eagles, and the portion of the show where the handlers bring the birds through the audience,... More

It was nice, the eagles being well trained.But somehow, the whole thing seemed incomplete. Like you are left wondéing afté the first act if they have anything else as well to show. Go if you are in Provins, as its small and not many activities, but been to better bird shows to be honest.

A good workout as this walk has some steep bits up to the ramparts and stairs but if you are fit it is a good way to get to grips with the town and photogenic to. A nice place to stop is the rose garden for refreshments and to buy the local rose petal preserve.

Great show took place in the Theatre of the ramparts. Loved the great performance from the amazing birds ( hawks, caracaras, owls, and of course, the eagles etc.) and the horses. For me, it was a show for all ages, and good for families and school kids. Educational and entertaining, highly recommended. Notes: Usually two shows a day (2:30pm ,... More

The reason I decided to do a day trip to Provins from Paris was because of the two shows. The Eagles of The Ramparts and The Legend of The Knights, both 12 euro each. Definitely worth it, amazing show although only in French it is something not to be missed! The birds get really close and are amazingly trained, varied... More

This was surprisingly good, just loved it, even more than Carcassonne , some might be surprised at someone saying that, but even if its a bit touristy i felt more of a historical connection with it, Carcassone has a fudge or pizza shop round every corner. Take the time to go here, really is worth it, so much history, lovely... More
