Discover the Château de Vincennes, its keep and its Sainte-Chapelle during a guided tour!

A symbol of the modern state.

The building asserts royal power: it protects the capital but also guarantees the kings against uprisings. It was the heart of the French monarchy until 1682, when Louis XIV preferred Versailles. The keep was used as a prison from the 16th century until the 19th century: Fouquet, the Marquis de Sade and Mirabeau were all held there. Transformed into barracks and an arsenal by Napoleon I, the fortress protected Paris during the invasions of the 19th century.
