Places of interest in the Hauts-de-Seine department (92)
Jatte Island, 2 km long and 200 m wide at its widest point, is located in the Hauts-de-Seine (92) department. It straddles the municipalities of Levallois-Perret and Neuilly-sur-Seine, less than two kilometers from Paris. The island can be accessed by three bridges: Levallois Bridge to the northeast, Maréchal-June Bridge which connects it to Neuilly, and Courbevoie Bridge. Two pedestrian footbridges also provide access to the non-island parts of Neuilly-sur-Seine and Levallois-Perret.
Formerly known as Grande Jatte Island, the origin of the island's name is uncertain. "Jatte" refers to a deep, rimless, handleless cut. In miners' slang, "jatte" refers to a boat, so the island could owe its name to the boats that once traversed the area or its boat-like shape.
The Neuilly Castle was built in 1751 on the site of an old building that belonged to Louis Béchameil de Nointel, who is credited with the creation of Béchamel sauce. He was the finance superintendent for the Duke of Orleans and headwaiter to Louis XIV. The castle passed between wealthy nobles before being purchased by the future Louis-Philippe Premier in 1818. He bought a large piece of land to isolate his castles and acquired seven islets, including Grande Jatte Island. He began developing the island and installed the Temple of Love at its northern tip. The estate was confiscated by Napoleon III in 1852.
At the end of the 19th century, the location became a site for festivities and leisure. Gradually, Impressionist painters like Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and Alfred Sisley began to frequent the area, forever leaving their mark on its history. The island evolved into a residential area while retaining its leisurely charm.
Jatte Island is a popular site on the western outskirts of Paris, especially for nature lovers looking to enjoy a breath of fresh air while strolling along the shoreline. Visitors will discover a tranquil, rural landscape abundant in greenery. Jatte Island also offers a journey into the past, with landmarks such as the Temple of Love serving as historical points of interest. Visitors can also stop by the Levallois Fishing House for some fun activities. Finally, the island is home to numerous delightful restaurants.
The Meudon Art and History Museum
The Meudon Art and History Museum is located at 11 Rue des Pierres, in Meudon, Hauts-de-Seine. The building itself is a museum, being an old bourgeois residence from the seventeenth century. The property once belonged to Ambroise Paré, considered the father of modern surgery and a royal surgeon. In 1550, he bought it from his in-laws. In 1590, his brother-in-law, François le Rousselet, purchased it and the house was expanded during the 1600s. The most famous owner was actress Armande Béjart, wife of Molière.
The building was converted into the Meudon Art and History Museum in 1943. It holds more than 9,650 works composed of paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, medals, and other art and valuable objects, some of which have a direct connection with the town of Meudon. The museum's collection is divided into three categories: landscape painting, the history of Meudon, and post-war contemporary art. Visitors will find works by Magnelli, Arp, Stahly, Caesar, Dietrich, Le Moal, and others.
The museum also exhibits paintings of nineteenth-century French landscapes, donated to the city by the Grellety Bosviel family. These magnificent paintings include works by artists such as Jules Dupré, Charles-François Daubigny, and Albert Marquet. The history of the city can be explored through touch screens within the documentation center.
The Saint-Cloud National Domain History Museum
The Saint-Cloud Museum is located within the Saint-Cloud Park, a 460-hectare estate situated in the Hauts-de-Seine department. The museum is set up in the so-called "Ecuries Basses" building, consisting of five rooms. It is dedicated to the history of the lost Château de Saint-Cloud, reviving the glorious past of this area, which played a crucial role in French history.
Indeed, Napoleon Bonaparte was proclaimed Emperor at the castle on 18 May 1804. Louis XVIII chose it as his residence during the Restoration. During the Second Empire, it was Louis Napoleon who lived there. The declaration of war against Prussia was signed on 17 July 1870. Following the fall of the Empire, the castle was ravaged by fire.
The Saint-Cloud Estate Historical Museum preserves some treasures from the castle: paintings, sculptures, porcelain. Photographs are also on display to provide a sense of the architecture and decor of the old castle. The museum's visit is a recommended route for park visitors.
