Manoir à la Verrière

Great classic of urban exploration, Manoir à la Verrière is definitely in my Top 5 of the most beautiful places visited. As usual, I don't look at the photos of my predecessors in order to save a minimum of suspense. In the case of the Verrière, the abundance of such pictures forced me to already know the place.
Despite this, by entering in the castle, I was amazed by the beauty of the castle and its unique atmosphere.

Built on three floors (not including basements, unvisited, and the attic), intense natural light floods the central part of the building. Indeed, a skylight crosses up and down the mansion and avoids the central areas are in the dark.
Besides this ingenious process, the excellent state of preservation is also astonishing, despite the successive visits at a frantic pace in years. In this regard, some devastation is still to be deplored : a few fucking graffiti, paint on the walls and especially the breaking of the mirror that once adorned the hall of the ground floor.

Abandoned since the 80's, the Manoir à la Verrière has been emptied of its furniture. It remains the most difficult to move objects. One can also observe a beautiful collection of bathrooms, an old cooker, a stove, a lift and the famous red carpet.

We start by the many intact bathrooms.
Everything is still in place, a miracle.

The other rooms are empty, apart from a forgotten object from time to time.

This structure was probably accommodated for stained glasses.

The famous skylights in the roof.
The white walls reflect light to the lower floors. Simple but effective.

At the time of its splendor, the castle had to impress visitors. This is still the case today.
