Set off to discover the Royal Château of Blois and time travel on a grand scale!

Listed as an historic monument since 1845, the Château of Blois is considered one of the most impressive castles in the Loire Valley. Located in the heart of Blois, it is often the first castle visited on the Loire Valley Châteaux tour, as it is an essential part of their history. 

You will discover a castle that will intrigue you, a combination of four centuries of architecture, four different eras coming together around the same courtyard. It is a testimony to the evolution of French architecture from the 13th to the 17th century, from the Court to the Renaissance.

Beyond this particularity, it is also a place that contains many secrets of the French Court...! Seven kings and ten queens have reigned in succession here, and several historical events have taken place, including dramas, plots and power games.

You will be able to admire the sumptuously decorated and furnished rooms, such as the Estates General room, Henry III's bedroom, and royal flats, which will transport you centuries back in time, into the daily life of the royals.

Finally, don't miss the three museums housed within the castle itself: the archaeological museum, the lapidary museum and the Fine Arts museum!
