The medieval city of Senlis: your next weekend getaway from Paris

With a long and rich history dating back to imperial Rome, the medieval city of Senlis is a mere 10 km drive from the Tiara Chateau Hotel Mont Royal Chantilly. Lovers of ancient buildings will enjoy visiting Gallo-Roman arenas and ruins of battlements. Early French dynasties lived here, drawn by proximity to the Chantilly forest for hunting game.

The picturesque cobblestone streets in this gothic city takes its visitors on a journey into a cloak-and-dagger novel. The cradle of the Capetian dynasty, the city brings history to life through its well-known cathedral, abbey and priory. In later centuries, magnificent private mansions were constructed, a direct contrast to the crumbling ruins of the royal castle. Regardless of era, a consistent theme is respect for the hunt. A tradition well illustrated by Senlis Musée de la Vénerie - Museum of the Hunt.
