LOIRE CASTLES
“Unique architectural jewel built starting in 1519 at the request of François I, a lover of the arts and passionate hunter, the Château de Chambord has become emblematic of the French Renaissance in Europe and throughout the world. In 1840, the Château de Chambord is registered on the first list of French historical monuments. Since 1981, it has been inscribed on UNESCO’s world heritage list. ” (https://www.chambord.org/en/)

“The history of the Château de Chenonceau is defined by an almost uninterrupted succession of women who built, embellished, protected, restored and saved it. The first château was a medieval château dating from the 12th and 13th centuries, of which only the dungeon remains: the Tour des Marques. The château in its current form was built between 1513 and 1517, by Thomas Bohier and above all his wife, Catherine Briçonnet.” (https://www.chenonceau.com/en/)
