The walk takes place mainly in the Bois de Vincennes in Paris. It ends with a visit of the Château de Vincennes.
This rather long walk starts from the Porte Dorée metro station to the Château de Vincennes station. On the way, you can visit the former museum of colonies which is now called the cité nationale de l'histoire de l'immigration. It is absolutely necessary to go inside to admire the art deco architecture. The visit is short and lasts only fifteen minutes. Then you can continue the walk and cross a part of the Bois de Vincennes to get to the Château de Vincennes. When you arrive, you are struck by this monumental complex. The Château de Vincennes is not well known and not much visited by tourists but it is worth a visit. Its history is rich, it was used as a royal residence and then as a prison and its architecture is impressive.
The colonial exhibition of 1931 showed the different facets of the French colonies through several pavilions. Only a few traces remain today. The last remaining pavilions of the colonial exhibition have become a Buddhist center and cannot be visited.
If you want, you can make a detour to see the Royal Alley.
