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

The feudal stronghold of Langeais, with its high walls, round towers, crenellated sentryway and drawbridge, has survived intact through the centuries. Built between 1465 and 1470 by Jean Bourré, Louis XI‘s treasurer (1423-1483), the castle houses untold treasures, antique furniture and fine tapestries; note in particular the tapestries portraying the Nine Worthies and some mille-fleurs. Above all, savour the authentic atmosphere of the 15C and the Renaissance.   – Michelin Travel : TheGreenGuide
