Situated in the western suburbs of Paris and along the Seine river banks, Poissy is a charming city especially known throughout the world for one of Le Corbusier’s masterpieces: the Villa Savoye, built in 1931.
During this tour, we will visit Poissy and see impressive remains of the biggest monastery that was once ruled by Dominican monks. We will learn of the historic past linking Poissy with royalty and monasteries, then we will walk to Villa Savoye, the weekend home of the Savoye family, built between 1928 and 1931 and called “Bright Hours”. This villa, listed as an historic monument during the lifetime of Le Corbusier, is representative of the basis of modern architecture, and was very quickly an icon of the Modernist Architecture in the world and a pilgrimage place for a lot of architects.
