Petit Futé's opinion on BARRY CASTLE

Plate millesim 2022

Formerly named Water pavilion, as he housed under Louis XIV the governor of the Marly Machine, the domain belonging to the Crown passed into the hands of several occupants who gradually made a small castle. Louis XV housed his favorite Jeanne du Barry in 1769, a worthy replacement for Madame de Pompadour. She restored the domain by the architect Angel-Jacques Gabriel, who orna with bucolic wood, and enriched her with a Doric greenhouse, orangerie, temple… The Countess of Barry built between 1770 and 1772 the music pavilion on the plans of the young architect Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, having obtained from the king the right to add a building in his park to host his receptions. A contested character within the monarch's court, the Countess of the Barry found refuge and remained exiled in his castle since 1776, until his death on the scaffold in 1793. The castle was classified historic monument in 1994 after experiencing a period of abandonment. Now restored, it is on time open to visit (information on the site of the Tourist Office: www.pays-des-impressionnistes.fr).
