Exterior is spectacular
The Castle of Ussé was one of the castles of the Loire Valley that I liked. Its exterior is spectacular. It's known as the Sleeping Beauty Castle, and they say that the writer of the story was based on it to recreate it. The interior is wonderful and all the rooms are furnished. There's an exhibition of clothes and shoes at the time, along with a reenactment of a traditional wedding. In one of the towers, there's a reenactment of the story of Sleeping Beauty, showing some of the strories most famous scenes. You can visit the stables, the chapel and the winery, where there is another reenactment, in this case how it operated at the time.
