Description

A symbol of the modern state. The building affirms royal power: it protects the capital but also guarantees kings against its uprisings. He was the heart of the French monarchy until 1682, when Louis XIV preferred Versailles to him. The keep served as a prison from the 16th century until the 19th century: Fouquet, the Marquis de Sade or Mirabeau were detained there. Transformed into barracks and arsenal by Napoleon I, the fortress protects Paris during the invasions of the 19th century.
