Très beau château du 15ème et 17ème siècle donc en partie gothique et complété renaissance. Ce château est ouvert au public que sur une courte durée dans l'année et principalement le mois d'août. Seules certaines pièces peuvent être visitées et la visite se fait sur accompagnement. La visite extérieure permet de voir les évolutions architecturales.

Jammer genoeg was het kasteel zelf gesloten voor bezoek maar ondanks dat mochten wij van degene die aanwezig was wel rondom het kasteel en door de tuin lopen om een mooie indruk te krijgen.

Only open 40 days a year (August-begin Sept.) Free guided tour outside and inside the castle. Tips for the guides are welcomed.

Nous avons découvert l'existence de ce château à France miniature ! Il n'est ouvert au public qu'en août et les visites sont gratuites et guidées ( un pourboire pour le guide est bien sûr recommandé). Il n'y a que quatre pièces à visiter mais elles sont très intéressantes surtout la magnifique cuisine encore utilisée aujourd'hui. C'est un château plein de charme avec un très beau parc et une orangerie. Belle découverte !

Montparnasse Cemetery

Montparnasse Cemetery was created from three farms in 1824. Cemeteries had been banned from Paris since the closure, owing to health concerns, of the Cimetière des Innocents in 1786. Several new cemeteries outside the precincts of the capital replaced all the internal Parisian ones in the early 19th century: Montmartre Cemetery in the north, Père Lachaise Cemetery in the east, and Montparnasse Cemetery in the south. At the heart of the city, and today sitting in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, is Passy Cemetery.

Montparnasse cemetery is the burial place of many of France's intellectual and artistic elite as well as publishers and others who promoted the works of authors and artists. There are also many graves of foreigners who have made France their home, as well as monuments to police and firefighters killed in the line of duty in the city of Paris.

The cemetery is divided by Rue Émile Richard. The small section is usually referred to as the small cemetery (petit cimetière) and the large section as the big cemetery (grand cimetière).

Although Baudelaire is buried in this cemetery (division 6), there is also a cenotaph to him (between division 26 and 27). Because of the many notable people buried there, it is a highly popular tourist attraction.
