Medieval Castle of Blâmont
Description: The Clef de Voûte Association dedicates immense time and effort to preserving the remarkable and historical Blâmont village Castle, with its five towers, large chapel, and renowned cellar. On the second week of every month Clef de Voûte holds their annual collective workcamp for local volunteers.

Volunteers work as a team, thus are expected to take turns ensuring everyone gets to try all the tasks, and more importantly have fun!
