Night falls on Vaux-le-Vicomte
We went there at the end of the day to discover the new Christmas decorations and thehe monumental projection on the façade of the castle garden side.
It's every visit, an enchantment to discover and re-discover the castle of Vaux-le-Vicomte and its sumptuous French garden. This is without a doubt our favorite castle around Paris. A festive, supportive and bright program this winter in Vaux!
The 360° view from the dome is extraordinary. We discover the French gardens of André le Nôtre to the statue of Hercules, the estate and its foreststhe outbuildings on both sides of the castle, the ponds, the great canalthe old stables...
A monumental projection on the facade of the castle
Every evening, at nightfallThe spectator will attend the projection of animated images retracing the highlights of the history of Vaux-le-Vicomte! Each session lasts about 8 minutes. The images perfectly fit the facade and sublimate all the architectural details that compose it. A very nice sound and light show!
