another town to walk a bit more expansive due to the racecourse,living horse museum and castle and then the town, but still doable and many surprises along the way.
The viaduc de la canaridiere at the beginning of the valley de la Nonette, its a work part of the railroad line Paris-Creil, opened in May 10 1859. It has a height of 22,35 meters and a lenght of 443,80 meters. It was bombed and mined during WWII and put back in circulation in 1946!.
The arch de triomphe of Chantilly is pass the church of Notre Dame walking under it on rue de connetable you reach the castle on the back walking ,the best way to see a city ,remember.
Fondest memory: walking under the arch at the fall of night, sublime just like the photo !
Favorite thing: Both the external and internal architecture and design of the Chateau at Chantilly is beautiful. I think is mish mash of additions over the centuries has enhanced the character. Maybe controversially the French Revolution was not such a bad thing for Chantilly as new life has been brought in to the buildings over the last 120 years. With many works of art in all mediums have been brought here since the rejuvenation.
I loved these arms which appeared to be coming through the wall in the The Galerie des Cerfs ( Deer Gallery). They were a mix of being comical & spooky! There are large hunting tapestry's in this great hall.
A bit of usless information is the Disney film the Three Musketeers with Micky, Donald, Goofy & co is based in Chantilly Chateau, it is recognisable from the outside & there is a scene with these very arms coming out of the wall. (Well.................... I did tell you it was usless information!) (~_~)
Favorite thing: What we experience is an opportunity to be distance from the stress of the city and have the opportunity to reflect.
