Petit Futé's opinion on OIRON CASTLE
Oiron, a Renaissance castle, is the setting for one of the most prestigious contemporary art collections in the country. It also enchants visitors with its period treasures.
The singular Château d'Oiron, built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the powerful Gouffier family, has been home since the 1990s to an exceptional collection of contemporary art, Curios & Mirabilia. Conceived as a cabinet of curiosities, in memory of the great collector Claude Gouffier, this fabulous sensory journey is scattered from the interiors to the gardens, soliciting sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste. Classified as a Historic Monument, the Renaissance gallery of the Grand Ecuyer is decorated with 12 representations of the Iliad and the Aeneid(1549).
