    Visit: Chateau de Pierrefonds, rue Viollet-Le-Duc, 60350 Pierrefonds France

    Symbol of the royal power, Pierrefonds was initially built as an advantage to take control of trade between Flanders and Burgundy. It became a museum in 1867, as the project of Viollet-le-Duc to turn it as an imperial residence had never been completed.

    Your steps will then take you to the keep, the location of the noble living quarters and last retreat in the event of a siege, or

    the staterooms and the cabinet d'armes to have a look on Napoleon III personal collection.

    Come for a time travel in the Middle Age and discover this hidden castle, also used as the setting of a few movies!
