CASTLE

Château de Pierrefonds

Rue Viollet-le-Duc - 60350 Pierrefonds Chantilly
Until the architect Viollet-le-Duc completed the restoration for Napoléon III, the château de Pierrefonds (end of 19th century) was in ruins. Nearly 30 years were needed to complete the work. The builders took certain liberties with the archeological truth, but the result is astounding: a drawbridge, eight imposing defensive towers, a keep... all for a magical visit to the country of knights!
