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. I’ll show you three castles that probably haven’t been on your list of places to visit but hopefully, you’ll change that with these beauties. This central area plays host to some 144 castles that are registered as historic monuments.
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.
