Château de Fontainebleau

(continuer en français)

The Cour d’Honneur was first known for its Horseshoe Staircase dating from 1550. However, it has become the Cour des Adieux (Farewell Court) since the abdication of Napoleon I in 1814, who reviewed the Old Guard assembled in this court one last time. Listed as a historic monument, the Château de Fontainebleau has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981.
