Château de Raray

Situated at 45 minutes from Paris, Château de Raray dates back to the 17 century. The two long balustrades are the castle's most famous architectural elements. Their sculptures are largely inspired by hunting, antiquity and are most likely created by Florentine artists. In 1945, Château de Raray served as the location of some scenes from the movie Beauty and the Beast by Jean Cocteau. Since 1924, the building is listed as a Historic Monument.
