Château de Bussy-Rabutin (Côte d’or)
Bussy-Rabutin is a renaissance style castle built in the 14th century in place of a 12th century fortified house. Overhauled over the centuries, it has a 17th century facade. Its sumptuous interior decoration is the work of Roger de Bussy-Rabutin (1618-1693), including the portrait galleries, in particular the kings of France, the dukes of Burgundy, the great men of war and of course the ladies of the court of Louis XIV.
Its splendid French garden is also labeled “Remarkable Garden”
Listed as a historic monument in 1862, it was bought by the French state in 1929.
The Renaissance gallery, restored in 2020 as part of the Bern Mission, will host the second stage of the Prix Voltaire de la Photographie exhibitions in the spring of 2021.
