Palace of Tau
The stunning Palace of Tau, or Palais du Tau, is a national monument in France. Parts of it, including the Palatine Chapel and Tau room, date from as early as the 13th century. The history of the Palace is inextricably linked with the coronation of France’s kings pre-Revolution, since it was here that the coronation banquet was held. The Palace is open all year round and is just as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside, where you’ll find historical artifacts such as Charlemagne’s talisman and the Sainte-Ampoule, used in the coronations of France’s 32 monarchs.
