Centre des Monuments Nationaux information
The aristocratic mansion, Hôtel de Sully, dating from the early 17th century today houses the headquarters of the Centre des Monuments Nationaux , the body responsible for many of France’s historical monuments; there are brochures and lots of information available on sites nationwide. Here you’ll also find the Jeu de Paume – Site Sully , a branch of the more famous Galerie de Jeu de Paume , with excellent rotating photographic exhibits. Visiting both galleries costs €8/4. The Hôtel de Sully bookshop is excellent, and the two Renaissance-style courtyards are worth the trip alone.
