Château de Chenonceau Châteaux de la Loire – UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Built by Katherine Briconnet, remodelled by Diane de Poitiers, Catherine de Medicis and Louise de Lorraine, and resued by Mme Dupin, this chateau bears the imprint of many eminent women. Famous men have left their mark too in the fine furniture and decor ? Murillo, Tintoretto, Rubens… Its interior hosted some of the greatest figures of the 18C. Don’t miss the green study of Catherine de Medicis, the great gallery with chequered floor overlooking the Cher, the five queens’ bedroom, and that of Francois I with fine chimneypiece.   – Michelin Travel : TheGreenGuide

During the Second World War, many people took advantage of the privileged location of the Gallery, whose Southern door provided access to the Free zone, whilst the Chateau’s entrance was in the occupied zone. – Wikipedia
