It was at the heart of the French monarchy until 1682, when Louis XIV chose to settle in Versailles. The keep was used as a prison from the 16th up to the 19th century: Fouquet, the Marquis de Sade, and Mirabeau were held here. Under Napoleon I it was transformed into a barracks and arsenal, and the fortress protected Paris during invasions in the 19th century. It also became a place of national remembrance.

Itinerary Details

Visit: Chateau of Vincennes, Avenue de Paris, 94300 Vincennes France

With your skip-the-line entry, head inside the Château of Vincennes, which was a royal residence from the 12th to 18th centuries.

Admire its preserved medieval towers, the Sainte-Chapelle, and the 14th-century keep, which is the highest of its kind in Europe.

In the early 15th century, Louis XI was the first king to use the keep as a jail for his favorite prisoners, who were taken with him on his progresses throughout the kingdom. The keep was still being used as a prison in the 19th century, a symbol of arbitrary royal justice.

Restored after suffering extensive damage during World War II, the Château of Vincennes now houses...
