The Gobelins Factory has been weaving haute lisse (high relief) tapestries on specialised looms since the 18th century along with Beauvais-style basse lisse (low relief) tapestries and Savonnerie rugs. Superb examples are showcased in its gallery; one-hour guided factory visits take you through the ateliers (workshops) and exhibits of the thousands of carpets and tapestries woven here.

Turn up well ahead of time for same-day tour tickets.
