The Château de Chantilly
As one of the jewels of France’s cultural heritage, we had to visit this site. The amazing part is that this site has survived through the generation and was once a home of the last King of France- Louis-Philippe son’s- the Duke of Aumale. The chateau houses most of the Dukes’ masterpieces and other collected work of arts and he eventually bequeathed the property to the Institute of France in 1886. A journey back in time and worth the short treat outside of Paris.
Map of the Domaine de Chantilly
After the Louvre museum, you will find the second largest collection of antique paintings in France here. These art galleries were designed by The Duke of Aumale. The layout of the paintings haven’t changed since the 19th Century per the Duke’s wishes. Enjoy a leisurely walk through the galleries, but don’t expect to find any true order to the paintings. Surprises will await you at every turn, though.
