The royal Castle of Blois

A must-see in the Loire Valley, the Royal Castle of Blois is at once a museum of architecture and of the history of the castles of the Loire.

A must-see in the Loire Valley, the Royal Castle of Blois is at once a museum of architecture and of the history of the castles of the Loire, as it has been expanded over the centuries, depending on the style in fashion in each era. Its courtyard is framed with Gothic, Renaissance and Classical façades. But a visit to the apartments is also de rigueur, because as the home of seven kings and ten queens of France, the Château de Blois is particularly evocative of the power and daily life of the Renaissance Court.
