Location History
Formerly a monastery church belonging to the Mathurin monks under Saint Louis, it was re-annexed to the château under Francis I. Rebuilding works commenced during this reign continued under that of Henry II, whilst the current roof dates from Henry IV’s reign. Its outstanding décor, characteristic of the Second École de Fontainebleau, prefigures the baroque style.

All of the castle is classified in the UNESCO world heritage.
