Visit of the castle of Écouen

The castle of Écouen is located 20 kilometres from Paris, it is dedicated to the Renaissance.

The visit of the Castle of Ecouen can be done quickly. You have to be really fond of the Renaissance period to find an interest to the presented collections. The rooms are filled with a hodgepodge of different objects made during the Renaissance. Lot of explanations in each room, very long to read. A visit for the specialists of the Renaissance period. Fortunately the entry isn't very expensive (5 euros) and the visit to the castle of Ecouen is free the first Sunday of the month.
