    Saint Louis 1 more image

    by mike-tango Updated Sep 17, 2005

    The castle of Vincennes was the favorite residence of the king Louis IX (also known as Saint Louis). Although he was not born here, he often staid there to dispense justice.

    This statue can be seen in front of the castle.

    Relatively unknown this is the biggest medieval french castle.

    It is really worth going there. 20 minutes by metro Line 1.

    Free entrance everyday to the courtyard.

    This place is conveniently located. Just close to the metro Chateau de Vincennes entrance.
    Don't expect great french cuisine, but this is the right place if you want to eat a pizza or a steack with friees or a big salad. Also a good place just to have a beer, seating on the padeo ...
    Very crowdy in the evening and especially during the week-ends, when it becomes the meeting points of the youngsters from the area.

    There are 2 main ways of going to Vincennes through public transportation :
    RER line A station Vincennes
    Metro 1 direction Chateau de Vincennes

    Take the metro ! The RER is more expensive and the metro station is just in front of the castle.
