Fontainebleau. True abode of kings, palace of the ages Mandarin

First mentioned in 1137, the Château de Fontainebleau remained inhabited until the fall of the Second Empire. Although it was only occupied for a few months a year, it was constantly embellished by the rulers who stayed there. A true lesson in architecture and the history of interior design from the Renaissance to the end of the 19th century, this venerable residence bears witness to French genius and shows how much it has been able to establish itself as a crucible of the arts over the centuries.
