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.

  • One of the most beautiful cities in France... The advantage of Loches is a year-round activity, which is unfortunately far from being the case of our most beautiful villages. Not prestigious castles of the Loire, it would be a pity to not linger at Loches: a remarkable wall around the Castle, restaurants of excellence, as well as an offer of accommodation varied, animations summer... Do not hesitate!

  • After four days of castles to visit, we found 't that will and we have only the outside of this Palace. The streets around are more than worth a visit.

  • 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)
