Château de Maintenon, Maintenon
Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
Discover the 17th century apartments of Madame de Maintenon and the lavish rooms of the Sun King Louis XIV at Château de Maintenon. The main architectural features include the 13th-century keep, the bridge across the moat, and the corps de logis flanked by two round towers. Stroll to the far end of the formal French gardens to view the Vauban aqueduct built in 1685 to supply the fountains at the Palace of Versailles. The haphazard and varied heights of the towers, spires, and steeples create an emblematic character reminiscent of an old town or abbey.

The Castle, as well as its grounds, are not certainly impressive and majestic as those of Versailles, but they have that something elegant and harmonious making them still a feast for the eyes. Fans will love this place almost as much as he loved his mistress. Recommended!show original
