Vaux-le-Vicomte

Back

  • Vaux was the tragic setting for the downfall of Fouquet, a faithful minister who paid the price of life imprisonment, accused of an embezzlement he did not commit, victim of the jealousy of king Louis XIV.
  • Vaux was a haven for leading French artists. Writers, poets, painters and sculptors gave the best of their talents to the glory of Vaux.
  • A preserved genuine masterpiece of French 17 century art. The architect, decorator and gardener who created Vaux-le-Vicomte are the same who will create Versailles.
