Entrance tickets to Château de Pierrefonds
Attention! Due to the restoration of the drawbridges, the monument will be closed from 1 to 19 October.
Discover the Château de Pierrefonds, recreated by the architect Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century.
Erected in the late 14th century by Duke Louis of Orléans, the château was taken down in the 17th century and was in ruins when Napoleon III decided to commission architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc to rebuild it. He applied his architectural designs to create the ideal château, such as would have existed in the Middle Ages.
