Notes: Château des Capucins is a castle of the town of Rambervillers in the Vosges department in Lorraine. The castle is rectangular, with four floors with a lift under the roof. The two facades of the late eighteenth century and early nineteenth century, have a clean decorative treatment but neoclassical expression. It is a precious testimony of the civil architecture with clean lines of this era. The front to the southwest (city side), Louis XVI, has harmonious proportions, Greco-Roman elements (Ionic columns) and a carved railing to hide the roof. It overlooks a courtyard surrounded on each side by the Orangerie (nineteenth century) and dependencies. The rear façade northeast (garden side), First Empire, has a central triangular pediment. Small carved bees around some windows recall this period. Everything revolves around the number "7" on the two main facades. The property is fenced by a wall. The present owner opens the doors of the castle every year in mid-September during the European Heritage Days.
