Le château Royal de Blois is a good starting point if you want to discover the châteaux de la Loire.  The Royal Chateau of Blois witnessed the making of the Loire Valley history and during your visit you will get a sense of the Renaissance, the kings and the chateaux, the dramas and secrets, that made up this fascinating period in history. Blois was once the capital of France and no less than seven kings and ten queens have lived there. Some of them, such as Louis XII and Francois 1st gave instructions for a wing to be built to their personal specifications.  The four wings of the Château de Blois were built in four different architectural styles. Evidence of the medieval period can be seen in the fortified walls and towers, the gothic style influenced the building of the Louis XII wing, the Renaissance style wing ordered by François 1st, and the neo classical style found in the Gaston d’Orleans wing.

Come and begin your historical journey at the Royal Chateau of Blois!
