The Château de Vincennes is located Paris’ 12th Arrondissement. It has had a turbulent past, with its primary function to be a place of safety during war time. It’s pretty impressive to see, as it’s one of the best of medieval architecture in Europe. Its functions over time have varied - residents from Kings to those housed in the prisons with less pleasant fates.
The Château’s main feature has to be the 52 metre tall tower, which dominates the landscape.
The Château de Vincennes is located outside the centre of Paris and just north of the Bois de Vincennes park. It is well located because you can easily get to the centre. Or if big cities are not your thing, then relax and take a stroll in the park - picnic anyone? ;) And if you’re feeling more on the wild side, then you can take a 25 minute walk to the Paris Zoo!
