I will start a new section on my blog that will offer you several photos of some monuments of Europe from the past centuries. I don’t promise to post often but I will try to keep topic alive.
To start I propose four pictures (and not yet photos) of the Royal Castle of Creil, the first large city from my village. I never have liked the town because of its obvious ugliness and lack of interest, but since I have discover this representation I got more interested in it.
This castle have been built on the Oise river island in 1374 by Charles V near a former and older fortified castle (destroy in 860 and 894 by the Normans). Today remain only one tower that can be seen next to the museum Gallé-Julliet. Later sold by its owner, the Prince of Condé (who owned the Caslte of Chantilly) the construction was destroyed in 1784 and the ruins finished to be moved in 1900’s for the construction of the town hall and museum.
