Learn the history about the King, architecture and creation of the château. Vaux-le Vicomte stands as a symbol of the intelligence, taste and independence of its creator, Nicolas Fouquet. Explore the wild area of around 100 acres: LE NOTRE and LE VAU created for the first and only time in the seventeenth century, a perfect harmony between architecture and its environment. The vast area is divided up into a sequence of terraces, forming an orderly composition of embroideries based on Turkish motifs, bordered flower beds, shrubberies, grottos, lawns, lakes and fountains.
