Château de VincennesUntil 25 January 2015
A royal residence from Philippe Auguste to Louis XIV, considered for a time as fit to become the headquarters of the President of the Republic by Général de Gaulle, the Château de Vincennes is a landmark in French history. Just outside Paris, this medieval fortress has kept its outer fortifications, its large moat, its 52-metre-high central tower and its Gothic chapel. The Marquis de Sade was gaoled there in 1777, and from 1778 to 1784, when he was transferred to the Bastille gaol.
