About : European Heritage Days of Franco-Swiss Museum

The regiment of the Swiss guards, created by Louis XIII in 1616, was principally responsible for guarding and protecting the king. The soldiers were lodged with the inhabitant. In 1756, King Louis XV ordered the construction of three barracks in Rueil, Courbevoie and Saint-Denis, to house his Swiss guards.
Every week a detachment went to Versailles by way of the Swiss to form the picket of honor. On August 10, 1792, the Swiss guards were massacred at the Tuileries in order to protect the king.

The Guynemer Barracks was built by the architect Axel Guillaumot. It has been listed as a Historic Monument since 1973.
