Royal Fortress of Chinon

1
+ -

After a colossal renovation project that lasted six years, 150 metres of ramparts were restored at the Chinon Royal Fortress and the logis royaux recovered their 15th century Touraine aspect. Interactive and entertaining, the modern museum display and stage design bring this historical site to life. What’s more, there is a fabulous view of Rabelais’ city and the Vienne valley.
