Château de l'Empéri

Empéri refers to the Germanic Holy Roman Empire, fief of the archbishops of Arles, lords of Salon, and its territory. Several sovereigns stayed in this residence, the construction of which spanned the 10C to 13C; a Renaissance gallery was added in the 16C. The museum is housed in the Chapelle St Catherine, the ceremonial hall and some 30 rooms. The collections cover the history of the French army, from Louis XIV to 1918.
