The Châteaux of the Loire are famous worldwide and rightly so. From old medieval fortresses such as those at Chinon to more stately castles dotted around the area they make great subjects for both landscape and travel photography.
In this episode more castles are the subject of my lens in the Indre-et-Loire department of France. This central area plays host to some 144 castles that are registered as historic monuments. You’ll get to castles from throughout the ages and some, apparently, even have a network of underground tunnels too!
With this series I aim to introduce to some of the well known as well as lesser known castles that are here in central France. Do be aware though that not all of them accessible to the public and remain behind high walls sealed off from public gaze. But those that are visible will be covered where I can.
