Ile de la Cité and Louvre : historic Wars of Religion


An incursion in a key period of the history of France, that of the wars of religion of the sixteenth century, and a visit of places that were witnesses.
Discover the western end of the Ile de la Cité with the facades of the Palais de Justice as well as Pont Neuf, the oldest in Paris, a place of "freedom of expression". Enjoy the architectural, but also political and peaceable work of King Henry IV, between Ile de la Cité and Palais du Louvre. Visit the Square courtyard of the Louvre and Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois, church of the kings of France, in this district that was the setting for the launch of the terrible Saint-Bartholomew massacre. Why ? How ? What was the role of Catherine de Medici, King Charles IX, the League, Queen Margot, or Admiral Coligny ?
