Where decorative art meets architecture and interior décor
One of the major artistic accomplishments of the French Renaissance, the Château d’Écouen was built in honour of Anne de Montmorency, patron and Statesman for Kings François I and Henri II. The Château’s original décor showcases collections from the Musée National de la Renaissance (National Renaissance Museum), which embody all the diversity of the artistic and intellectual production of this exciting period.
Still rather unknown, this impressive monument juxtaposes local beauty with quality architecture, a place where prestigious artworks are set amidst a historical décor, creating a fascinating site of history and art.
