Chateau de Loches, Loches

(4.4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Constructed in the 11th century, Chateau de Loches is visible today as ruins only. The building is exemplary of military architecture of the Norman period. Built 500 m (1,600 ft) above the Indre River, the huge castle is famous for its massive square keep. Come to view the interesting layout with each floor consisting of a single room surrounded by stone walls measuring 23.3 by 15.4 sq m (76 x 51 sq ft) with walls 2.8 m (9 ft 2 in) thick.

  • For them who loves history, you will be delighted with the visit of the Royal City. Different styles reflecting different periods and of course Charles VII and Agnès Sorel, the first favourite who had died a "royal" treatment. And feel free to follow the guided tour, the tour guide we had was lovely and available. We had the right to a particular visit, what helps.

  • That scenery is just amazing. One of the many beautiful places in that area of France.
  • Nice castle, old donjon was used as residence by France Royal family
  • Nice castle, a bit too touristic
  • Impressive donjon. Too bad it is so poorly preserved.
  • Really to visit. The Dungeon is extraordinary. A lot of steps to climb but the game worth the candle. My children we loved (4-7 years)
