Chateau of Chateaudun, Chateaudun
(4.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Built between the 12th and 16th centuries, Chateau of Chateaudun shows off its origins as a 12th-century fortress overlooking the Loire River Valley. Perched on a limestone outcrop, this converted castle underwent renovations adding outstandingly authentic Gothic, feudal, and Renaissance architectural elements. The main roofing has a Gothic style, and inside, a finely wooden carved staircase remains from this period. Today, the castle includes the chapel, the Dunois wing, the Longueville wing, and a large keep that is 31 m (100 ft) high and 17 m (59 ft) in diameter.

  • I made the visit only because he needed a minimum of 3 people for a guided tour. The course is well explained and the visitor is invited to go to the gardens (suspended and medieval). The castle is a fairly Spartan place, is a set of pieces to visit in order by taking his time to absorb the atmosphere and reviewing the exhibits. The renaissance stairs are worthy of the castles of the Loire! The 'tribunal' is unique. A must see is the chapel where the tour starts. Are exposed to the sculptures of the "12 Apostles" with support written to understand them and study them. Exciting.

  • Fun to do... Very pretty Châteaudun and Park but is missing one or more guides for the visit and the history of the Castle...
