René Descartes House Museum
With its remarkable medieval houses, the village of La Haye-Descartes was renamed Descartes in 1967 in honour of the philosopher who was born there in 1596.
The house where René Descartes was born has been transformed into a pleasant museum whose rich scenography evokes the life and work of the father of modern philosophy. It also provides a historical and cultural panorama of the 17th century.
"Musée de France", "Maison des Illustres" and "Maison d'écrivain".
