Guided visit "The castral origins of the Royal Chapel of Dreux domain"
Remains of the Dreux fortress. Built in the 7th century on a promontory overlooking the meandering river Blaise, the Dreux fortress took on a strategic importance on the border between the Duchy of Normandy and the royal domain. It was most notably the scene for confrontation between Richard the Lionheart and King Philippe-Auguste, then later between King Henri IV and the Catholic League.
This visit offers the chance to discover the remains of this fortress that was replaced in the 19th century by the Royal Saint-Louis Chapel of Dreux, the resting place of King Louis-Philippe and his family members.
Guided visit in French, lasting approximately 1hr15, which includes a chance for visitors to discover, with commentary, the remains of the fortress and to freely visit the Royal Chapel, with a visitor guide in French.
Group visits for the sight impaired.
For these visitors, a guided group visit is organised. Reservation is required. This offers them the chance to enjoy a tactile visit of the funerary sculptures, complemented by commentary from a guide.
