Do you want to plunge into the daily life of the kings of France in the Middle Ages? Located immediately at the outskirts of Paris and easily accessible by metro, the Château de Vincennes is probably the most famous medieval fortress in Europe. The imposing building dominates the forest of Vincennes from the top of its massive dungeon, which rises to 52 meters of altitude. Visitors will have the pleasure of entering through the drawbridge, and will be able to admire the impressive moats of the castle.
A privileged residence of the kings of France before the construction of Versailles, Vincennes notably has a superb church and abounds in secret corners to explore during the visit. A true piece of French history to discover without moderation.
