Famous painters and sculptors, such as Primaticcio, Nicolo dell'Abbate, and De Hoey contributed their talents. Sebastiano Serlio introduced Italian Renaissance construction techniques to build the castle from 1544 to 1550. Chateau Ancy-le Franc is surrounded by a moat and complete with Corinthian capitals.

  • Very nice discovery during our tour of the Castle. The building is full of treasures and track of history making the site very nice and fun to discover. Art and architecture are present but without being too much. The visit is clear and sufficient. You will have a sheet of different parts (included in the price) or pay for the convenience of an audio-guide (which says the same thing). More garden view is superb and they are creating a new splendid garden.

  • Beautiful renaissance but walls inside basically redesigned in the 19th century. The name "Palace of the Renaissance" is somewhat misleading. Disappointing.

  • N not hesitate to stop at Castle d Ancy the Franc. The Park and the Castle are worth the detlur. By the way you can admire the nice kitchen on the right and the music room. With your board guide and d headphones if you wish you will make the visit at your own pace. The parreteres of the parks in rehabilitation are sumptuous. Young girls accompanying you will love dress up with dresses has the ren irth mode to make the visit and the small pages their pace with smile together! Don't forget the cameras... But... no flash!
