The Royal Château of Blois is the gateway to the châteaux of the Loire Valley. It is the castle with the strongest historical imprint in the Loire Valley, which allows visitors to rediscover 3 emblematic periods in French history. Blois has welcomed no fewer than 7 kings and 10 queens to its castle, where many legendary intrigues took place. To immortalise their visits to Blois, Louis XII, François I and Gaston d'Orléans took the opportunity to remodel the castle, each leaving a wing in their own image.
With these mixtures, the Château de Blois represents four different architectural styles: the medieval style, traces of which remain in the ramparts and certain towers, the Gothic style of the Louis XII wing, the Renaissance style of the François I wing and the classical style found in the Gaston d'Orléans wing.
The Château de Blois is a wellspring of knowledge, allowing visitors to learn about French history in a less conventional way.

Le château royal de Blois a été une belle découverte pour nous, nous ne connaissions pas ce château de la Loire et n'avons pas été déçu. Le pass avec le son et lumières et la maison de la magie est très bien!
