Chateau Royal de Blois Reviews
Very beautiful castle in the centre of Blois. During the centuries this castle has had different kings and therefore different architectural extensions . Gothic, Rennaissance and Classical building..... more »
The Château has its own interesting character and charm. The interior is in good condition and has its beauty. I was pleasantly surprised and suggest visiting while in Blois. more »
I'd call it a Royal palace and less of a castle, but that's me. We didn't go in because we had already seen a few other castles in the area but if you haven't seen any already it's definitely worth the look. The house of magic on the other side of the courtyard was really cool with the dragons that pop out. We were completely surprised by the show!
Impressive inside. The tour is very well organized. It gives a good historical context and explains the main events that happened in the castle. You feel that you are just allowed to visit a small part as the building is huge!
