In 1462 ve would become King of France was born in this palace, by the name of Louis XII. Joan of Arc was blessed in it by the Archbishop of Reims.

Castles in Amboise
Château d'Amboise
(16)
This castle is located on a hill overlooking the Loire River, the Ile d'Or, and the medieval town of Amboise. For fans Leonardo da Vinci, near the castle there is the small chapel of Saint-Hubert where the remains of this great scholar and artist lay at rest. He had spent a short time in the area, in the Castle Clos-Lucé under the invitation of Francis I. Although it has undergone many reconstructions, this castle played a key role in the region's history.

Cathedrals in Orléans
Orléans Cathedral

Now, I'm a fan of sunsets, especially on the beach!. But, on this trip to Picardy and especially during our time in Orleans, I noticed that the sunsets were not only beautiful with the sea as the background, but equally beautiful when setting over the cathedral. The cathedral is already majestic, but at sunset it becomes truly sublime.
Castles in Azay-le-Rideau
Château d'Azay-le-Rideau

A picture is worth a thousand words. This place is located at a tranquil setting and you can see stunning views. The gardens are the best part. You should view the castle from the outside. It is worthwhile to enter and walk the halls. The village is also beautiful with local hotels and restaurants. The audio tour is well. I must say that is a small castle, not Versailles, so it looks fast. It can be with children but the chairs should be left to go, and bring in arms or backpack if you do not walk. It is highly recommended.
Cathedrals in Tours
Tours Cathedral
(5)
It is one of the most important monuments in the city, and one of the most beautiful cathedrals I have visited. Built on the remains of a Gallo-Roman town called Caesarodunum, this cathedral is very bright very high. Entrance is free. You can also visit the cloisters, which is called "the Psalette"
Cathedrals in Chartres
Chartres Cathedral

Just one word: Wow! I had already entered dozens of French cathedrals, but this is awesome ... Going to Chartres, with the flat horizon, and seeing it on the horizon the two steeples rising upwards gives a feeling that is confirmed when one enters the city and goes towards the building ... Impressive! In addition to being big and high, which in itself is remarkable, I was also left admiring the fine sculptures adorning the facades and both interior corridors ... Not to mention the windows and the stories they tell (I advise a guide book, or someone who gives you explanations). They have recently renovated part of the interior, leaving the walls as white as the wings of an angel! ;)

A lovely city, west of France, whose shores are by the Loire River, where people go to find the charm of the city, and where a reed on a terrace can become a pleasant gathering with friends . A place with a French twist, close to castles, colorful landscapes, where welfare is ensured.
Castles in Villandry
Castello di Villandry
(6)
Villandry Castle was one of the castles I visited on my trip to the Loire Valley in June of 2010. Its exterior architecture is not as flashy as other castles in the Loire Valley, but it was well worth a visit. The castle's inside is open to visitors and is fully furnished, and let me tell you, it's not missing a single detail. What I liked about it was that there were rooms dedicated to children, with toys of the time and some mannequins with clothes. At the end of the visit you can also see an exhibition of tapestries, each more spectacular. You can take pictures inside.

Castles in Blois
La Vallée de la Loire
(5)
This is a place of beauty, full of castles that belonged to the French kings and noble people. It was named a World Heritage site on the list of UNESCO in 2000, for the quality of its architecture. The zone includes the castles of Blois, Chinon, Chambord, and the area between Sully Sur Loire River and Chalonnes. The villages in the areas are also nice, but the most impressive things to see are the buildings, and its integration with the natural environment. Most are from the Renaissance era and the Age of Enlightenment, whose influence is shown in the fineness of the architectural details of the castles. Some are still inhabited, there are many castles, the biggest belonging to the French state and are now museums that are open for visits, for example in Saumur, Chenonceaux, Chambord, and inhabited castles, like Cheverny, are partially open to the public and are visited because the furniture and family arms. To visit this region is very extensive, it is best to drive because public transport is limited. If you do not want to rent one, you can go to a tour agency that goes to 2 or 3 castles a day.

Musee des Beaux Arts de Tours

The Museum of Fine Arts in Tours is in the city centre, near the Cathedral. The building's construction, which is a collection of art, dates from the 17th and 18th centuries, and was originally an Episcopal Palace. In the gardens, there's a huge and beautiful cedar tree. It's open daily, except Tuesdays, from 9am to 6pm.
Churches in Tours
Basilica of St. Martin
(4)
The original Basilica of St. Martin was destroyed during the French Revolution, after going through many fires. It had the Charlemagne Tower and Clock Tower. In the year 1885 the construction of the new one began in a neo-Byzantine style. This is smaller than the previous one, which was one of the biggest religious sites in the West. At the top of one of the domes stands a statue of Saint Martin. It was finished in the year 1924.
Castles in Rigny-Ussé
Château d'Ussé
(5)
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. The castle is quite costly, but definitely worth the visit.

Amboise is the ideal base for touring the Loire Valley. The village itself has two important places to visit (the castle of Amboise and Clos Lucé, where Leonardo da Vinci lived).

Tour de Charlemagne
(3)
The Tour de Charlemagne was part of the old collegiate church of Saint-Martin, one of the biggest religious buildings in the West, which was constructed in honor of St. Martin, Bishop of Tours in the 4th century. The basilica doesn't exist anymore, as it was falling into ruins in the 18th century, and was finally totally destroyed during the French Revolution. What is conserved are the Charlemagne Tower and Clock Tower. It was renovated again in the early 20th century.
Castles in Cheverny
Château de Cheverny
(5)
Cheverny Castle Tintin or Captain Haddock rather, is what inspired Hergé to create Moulinsart. This castle is not as big as the neighbouring castles of Chambord, Blois and Chenonceau, but that's precisely its charm. You can get there by bus or by car, although we went by bike. We started going through a souvenir shop, which sells a lot of souvenirs from Tintin and Haddock, and then we entered the castle, which is still inhabited by a family. It is warmer than Chambord castle, which is empty of all furniture except for its paintings. After that, we visited the gardens, the greenhouse and the dogs. As this is a hunting region, and the lord of the castle has a pack of dogs. The castle was built in the year 1630, and its charm is mainly based on its collections of furniture and paintings of the period, and its well kept garden.

On a visit to the castles of "Loire" in France, do not miss out on the city of Blois. It is a lovely city, very organized and picturesque (it has an area of ​​houses and buildings on the outskirts subsidized that make a tiny suburb). It has over 50,000 inhabitants and is from the 6th century. Its historical part, the most interesting, is on the north side of the Loire River, although the south also has interesting parks. In Blois is its bridge, the old bridge , The Castle, the streets of the old town and the Museum of Fine Arts. The Castle is a work of art that shows 4 different styles, with outdoor sculptures and relics with attractive details. There is a grand staircase to the side of the main entrance, it iss in Renaissance style and is the most important detail of the castle. The presence of Joan of Arc in the city was important, and it was a hub for the Battle of Orleans. In her honor there is a statue in one of the gardens of the city. Apart from its own charms and attractions, visitng Blois is perfect as it is a great spot to address the visit of the castles along the river.
