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 the department of Indre-et-Loire, there are around 144 castles registered as historic monuments. You’ll get to see castles from throughout the ages starting with Château d’Amboise.
With this series, I aim to introduce 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 are 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.
