Description

Enter Célestins barracks, the heart of the French Republican Guard, and discover the place where these cavalrymen train.

Inside the Main Stable and the Staff Stable, your Cultival guide will explain the characteristics of the Guard’s majestic horses. Today, these stables are home to the 140 horses of the 1st squadron and of the brass band of the Republican Guard.

You will also discover the superb ‘Traditions room’, which is dedicated to the history of the Republican Guard. You will be captivated by the magnificent structure of the ring, built in the style of Gustave Eiffel, where the cavalrymen train every day.

A guided tour that is off the beaten track!
