Chateau de Loches, Loches
(4.4/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • Loches deserves his label "most beautiful detours of France". A day is necessary if we want to enjoy walks in the old town with especially the tour of the Royal Citadel: Castle Dungeon in Europe with the most beautiful, royal house, collegiate church Saint-Ours with the recumbent figure of Agnès Sorel... Adults and children can find their account of discoveries and emotions.

  • We arrived too late for the visit paid.., regardless, there are many things to see in this beautiful city, the site is vast, all is harmonious and guest to linger here and there. One regret: there are as many stores closed permanently, homes for sale in this unique setting.

  • 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)
