Château d'Oiron

Come and discover Oiron Chateau, built from the 16th century onwards on the border of the Poitou and the Loire valley regions, and its contemporary collection of Curios & Mirabilia, freely inspired by the idea of a cabinet of curiosities in reference to the fabulous art collection of Claude Gouffier, Grand Squire to Henri II.

Understanding the Oiron Chateau 

• The chateau of the Gouffier family. The current chateau was built by three successive generations of powerful patrons of the arts between the second half of the 15th century and 1642. Between 1669 and 1683 the chateau was modified to give onto a forecourt with two pavilions, the ‘Trophies Pavilion’ to the east and the ‘King’s Pavilion’ to the west, and the facade was altered.
