Inside the castle of Pierrefonds, ◆ This is the Salle des Preuses, which used to be the justice hall. 12m high, 52m long. A very impressive room. The 9 statues you see in the back represent the Empress Eugenie (wife of Napoleon III) and her ladies. ◆ The ruins of the medieval castle were renovated in the 19th century, and the rooms started to get gorgeous decorations like this one, but because of a lack of funds many rooms remained unfinished.
