Tour Jean-sans-Peur

20 rue Étienne Marcel - 75002 Paris Châtelet - Les Halles
This illustrious building, classed an Historical Monument since 1884, but never opened to the public, finally unveils its secrets, and in particular: its spiral staircase, almost certainly inspired from the grand staircase of Charles V's Louvre, the staircase's magnificent vault with its plant decoration (oak, hop and hawthorn), unique in France, the room known as the " bedchamber of Jean sans Peur ", supposed refuge in case of trouble… The museographical visit places the tower in the context of its time (daily life in a ducal residence, a glimpse at mediaeval construction etc). In evoking existing medieval buildings in the Capital, a visit of civil and military medieval Paris is roughly outlined.
