Musée national de la Renaissance

in detail

The Château d’Ecouen was built for the High Constable Anne de Montmorency. Located about 20km north of Paris, on a rise overlooking the plain of the Ile de France, it is one of the finest châteaux built in the country during the Renaissance. Furthermore, it is one of the few that has survived relatively intact, even to part of its original decoration of painted fireplaces, ceremonial paving, ceilings and friezes. It is furnished with one of the most prestigious Renaissance collections of furniture, ceramics, enamels, glass, stained glass, gold and silver, paintings, weapons and tapestries, including an outstanding tapestry set recounting the History of David and Bathsheba.
