Le Palais Épiscopal

This was once the residence of Jacques-Benigne Bossuet during his time serving as a French Bishop in Meaux. The building was constructed in the 12th Century, long before Bossuet actually lived there, however visitors can still see his tombstone on the grounds. There are tours that operate around the palace, including the cathedral and the gardens, that give background to the difference architectural styles that dominate the building. The residence was in constant construction from the 12th Century all the way up until the 17th Century with the completion of major changes on the lower level. In 1927, the building was listed as a historic landmark and has since housed the Bossuet Museum.

Meaux Cathedral

Located in Meaux, a small town just outside of Paris, Meaux Cathedral stands against the test of time. After over three centuries of construction, the cathedral was finally completed in the 16th Century. Due to its lengthy span of construction, visitors can see multiple periods of Gothic architecture under one roof. The spacious interior rises nearly 30 feet (9 meters) and also features an organ dating back to the 17th Century. Meaux Cathedral is truly a sight to see.

Château de Vaux le Vicomte

This château has two significantly inspired events. One was the tragic downfall of Fouquet, a minister who paid the price of life imprisonment because King Louis XIV was jealous of his beautiful château. And under the influence of Fouquet, Vaux-le-Vicomte became a haven for French artists, writers and sculptors who gave their all for the glory of the residence. Check the website for information on the different visits. There is a candlelight visit that is going to be apt for all the lovebirds. Hours vary throughout the year and you can buy passes for more than one day; see the website or call for more information.
