This school was build in the 17th century, during the reign of Napoleon III. Located in a beautiful park of 15 000m2, with some old majestic trees. During his two century of existance, 20 000 schoolers studied here. For a longtime, It was Considered like the greatest school in the region.

The college was closed ten years ago. And a part of the site was bought for a youth rehabilitation device.

 

For the biggest part, all the doors are closed and the windows sealed. We didn't saw the most interesting stuff like the neo-gothic chapel.

 

This place has a huge potential, we definitely have to come and try again.  The "non-urbex" pictures, mostly archives, make us drool with envy.

      Chateau Marianne / Chateau Alchimiste
       
       
      History
       
      Not much history on this location but it was rumoured to be have been once occupied by a former professor. The chateau is located in a small, rural town in France. The town's residents have halved in the last 40 years and it was beginning to look quite run down. I can imagine the nickname  'Alchimiste' (which means Alchemist in French) came from all the chemistry equipment left behind such as: test tubes, syringes, bottles, cylinders and beakers.  It seems the previous inhabitant was also a bit of an artist, we found many paintings scattered around the house and a large collection in the attic, as well as a small studio in an upstairs room. 
       
      Visit
       
      I visited this beautiful chateau on a euro trip with @PROJ3CTM4YH3M. We went the previous night to check to see if it was accessible and boy we were in for a shock! Neither of us realised how much stuff had been left and how interesting the contents were. We both particularly liked the framed butterfly collection which was hung up in one of the living rooms, as it reminded us of the film 'Silence of the Lambs.'  After a short investigation we decided to return the following day and booked a hotel in a nearby town.  Arriving the next morning once sun had risen, the place was really brought into it's element. So, as always, hope you enjoy my photos!

      The secrets of the legendary catacombs of Paris, a tunnel system that spans more than 280km in length.
       
      The catacombs in Paris hold remains of more than six million people. They are part of a tunnel network that runs below Paris that is more than 280 kilometers long. No one knows how far the tunnels extend in total, as there are still many paths that are unmapped and even undiscovered. The main reason behind the tunnels was to extract  Lutetian limestone for use as a building material. For instance, parts of the Louvre, the Place de la Concorde and Les Invalides were built with limestone from this tunnel system.
       
      The catacombs only take up about 2.1km of the tunnel system and they are the only part that is legally accessible. Even though that is the case, many people refer to the surrounding tunnel network when speaking about the "Catacombs of Paris".
       
      The ossuary was created in the late 1700s to tackle the problem of overflowing cemeteries and until the early 19th century, the ossuary was largely forgotten until it became a novelty place for concerts and other private events.
      The network is mostly intact today and is regularily toured by urban explorers or so called "Cataphiles".
       
      If anyone is curious about the way we took, the names of the rooms we went into and a bit of a sidestory, here's the full post (warning: It's damn long and I feel it would overcrowd the forums)
       
      Also, even though I posted a lot of photos, these are not all, so feel free to check out the rest of them if anyone has gotten curious.

      A couple of days ago I went up into a local forest to search for a tiny old school.
      There are no location details online so it kind of was like looking for a needle in a haystack so finding something was better than nothing at all  
      No, the music isn't from Psycho
