Dreux The Essential
Interesting
Dreux, caught between Île-de-France and Normandy, is an attractive town with a pedestrianised centre, presided over by the majestic royal chapel, in which the Orléans family elected to be buried. With its tombs and recumbent figures it is a veritable museum of 19C sculpture. Be sure to see the superb belfry (16C), the Renaissance Château d'Anet and, with children, the medieval garden of the Écomusée des Vignerons et Artisans drouais.
