The Royal Château of Blois


A residence for kings and queens

The favourite residence of 7 kings and 10 queens of France, the Château de Blois is a veritable architectural and historical synthesis of the Loire Valley châteaux. Its four wings in different styles and monumental stairway built around the main courtyard offer an astonishing panorama of French architecture.

Visitors can discover the history of this extraordinary gem overlooking the Loire River in any number of ways: a visit of the château of course, on your own or with a guide, the ‘fun’ tour tailored to families, the Son & Lumières narrated by the celebrated French actors Robert Hossein, Pierre Arditi and Fabrice Lucchini, and even fencing shows.
