Overview

Who is Jean Sans Peur ("Fearless John")? He is the man responsible for the Hundred Years' War. His big mistake? Murdering Louis d'Orléans in 1407. Halfway up the tower where he used to live, you can find an enchanting vault encrusted with leafy greenery. The structure also houses the council of the duke of Burgundy. The vault of the large screw is one of the masterpieces of the French Gothic sculpture.
