Discover the Quartier Carnot of the French Republican Guard: an incredible place located at the gates of Paris.

A few steps from the Château de Vincennes, accompanied by your tour guide, you will plunge into the very special world of this military district, which extends over nearly 8 hectares in a peaceful setting reminiscent of the countryside.

Your guide will recount the history of the Quartier Carnot, built between 1890 and 1893 in Vincennes, where, since the beginning of the 19th century, many military installations have been accommodated. Entrusted to the Dragoons until 1939, then hosting various activities such as the American automobile surplus and a road traffic regiment, the Quartier Carnot has been home to the 2nd and 3rd squadrons of the Republican Guard since 1972.

Your guide will focus on the organisation, the duties and the skills and expertise of the Republican Guard, a prestigious French institution, while you explore the stables, the riding arena and also learn about the craftsmen's trades.
A visit that offers the opportunity to learn while enjoying a break from the Parisian hustle and bustle.

Please note: The Republican Guard being a place of work, riders will not necessarily be training during these visits.
