Originally a meager 12th-century hunting lodge, this fortified royal residence on the fringe of Paris was expanded several times throughout the centuries until it reached its present size under Louis XIV. Notable features of the striking medieval chateau include the beautiful 52m-high keep (1370) and royal chapel (1552), both of which can be explored as part of a guided visit. Note that the chapel is only open between 11am and noon, and 3pm and 4pm.
