The carved decoration of the Reception Hall, dating from the 19th century, have been totally restored.
Used to dress-up each of the living rooms of the castle. Despite those destroyed by the collapses, those that were stolen, many magnificent works still remain in place. The monumental stone chimney carved from the General States Hall, bears the inscription “Beatus on est esse se qui non putat”
Various works of lesser importance were removed and repositioned decoratively in the rooms of the Castle.
