DESCARTES

Description

The village of Haye-Descartes is home to some remarkable medieval houses and was renamed Descartes in 1967, after the famous philosopher who was born there in 1596. His birthplace has been turned into a pleasant museum with rich illustrations of the life and works of the father of modern philosophy. The museum also provides a historical and cultural overview of the 17th century.
