Beyond the “big story”, you will discuss with your guide the organization of the Hôtel du Pape and the food services. What types of food were preferred? Where did the raw materials come from? How were attempts to poison the Pope fought?

Do you know why the Pope worked under the worried eye of a deer painted on the walls of his study? Why does the lion take a special place in the sculpted decoration of the Palace?

What does this monkey looking at himself in the mirror at the exit of the Grande Chapelle mean? Can't you guess? Your guide knows it and will share it with you!
