“Provins at the time of the Fairs of Champagne”This is a former merchant house. Dating from the 13th century, it is one of the most sumptuous buildings of Provins. Admire the sophisticated architecture of the rooms, sculpted capitals and the cross-rib vaults. This edifice was used as a covered market during the Fairs of Champagne up to the end of the 13th century, then as the place for paying tithes. Today, the Tithe Barn houses a permanent exhibition: scenes and characters bring to life the main crafts and the merchant activities of this time. Audio-guided visits available in exchange for identity papers.

The museum is set in an authentic medieval building and shows typical artisans, merchants and craftsmen. Good way to understand history. Be aware of the very steep staircase to exit (optimized space in the old times).

I was fascinated by how the middle age men cleaned the animal skin. Could be interesting in some points how the Italians introduced trade in this area!
