Historic Site
Park of the Pagoda of Chanteloup is the oldest park in the French Castle of Chanteloup. Note the distinctive Chinese-inspired 44 m (144 ft) high pagoda monument supported by 16 columns with 16 pillars. Each of the seven floors has a dome built in it, and each dome has a narrow staircase that narrows further as you ascend towards the top. Climb the steps to reveal a panorama of the lush Amboise forest and the contours of the Loire Valley.

  • Incredibly overpriced (10 E!) While this might be a neat tower, your money would be better spent in Amboise. I was able to get a picture over the fence, but that's all I needed. I'm sure the views were great but it was not worth it to me.
  • A very good memory of this place

  • An impressive place. Atypical for the region but really to do. Wooden games have delighted children. Thank you for your investment in the conservation of this monument.

  • There is really not much to see or do. The price is far too high in my opinion.
