Chateau d'Oiron

Chateau d’Oiron


This castle was one of the great Chateaux of the Loire built by the high dignitaries of the kingdom. It was constructed in the 16th century to house the large collection of paintings and objets d’art of Claude Gouffier, chief equerry to Henri II.
The sumptuous decorations and an exceptional gallery of Renaissance paintings in the style of the Fontainebleau school are complemented by fine, carved and painted panelling.
The Chateau is now home to Curios and Mirabilia, a remarkable collection of contemporary art and curiosities.
