  • The outside does not have too many mine but inside is sublime, the price is a bit excessive but worth the glance, everything is clear, clean and worth to take one or 2 hours well visit. Especially the stained glass on the ceiling and downwards with the magnificent sculptures in marble finely carved.

An exceptional set of recumbent from 1830, the chapel of Saint-Louis de Dreux became the necropolis of the House of France. The family of King Louis-Philippe recumbent are ordered to the biggest names in the funerary sculpture of the 19th century: Millet, bar, Lenoir, Pradier and Mercia. It is the latter that is running the mausoleum of the King and the Queen Marie-Amélie. Tour among these tombs to evoke the hours and the misfortunes of the members of the family of Bourbon - Orléans who are going through the turmoil of the 19th century. Remarkable stained glass Sèvres delivered here a splendid stained-glass windows painted and glazed inspired religious compositions or historical such as "life of St. Louis", patron of the Chapel Royal.
