The castle of Chantilly. With the exception of the Petit Château, built in the XVIth century by Jean Bullant, the current castle is a reconstruction of the XIXth century on plans of the architect Honoré Daumet for the last son of the king Louis-Philippe 1st, Henri d'Orléans, the duke of Aumale (1822-1897), who installed his collections of paintings, drawings and old books there.
