    A château with a portrait gallery unique in Europe

    Once the hunting lodge of François 1er, and later the residence of ministers, the Château de Beauregard has always been renowned for its famous "Galerie des Portraits", with its 327 illustrious figures. Originally, it was a ceremonial gallery where important figures in society at the time exalted their knowledge of politics and history. Today, it is an educational tool par excellence, where visitors appreciate the gallery for its rich historical heritage, recounting the story of how Europe was formed today, and artistic heritage, where the evolution of portrait art can be seen. Indeed, the lapis lazuli ceiling and Delft earthenware tiles add to the splendor of this room.

    The cabinet des grelots, designed by Scibec de Carpi, Henry II's royal cabinetmaker, marks the Renaissance period.

    To honor the Galerie des Illustres, a garden within the park was created by the renowned Gilles Clément (Jardin du Musée du Quai Branly, Paris). The garden is made up of twelve rooms of twelve different-colored bowers, representing themes evoked in the château's gallery of 327 portraits.
    In other words, 315 years of history told in flowers and colors.

    Open to the public and inhabited by the same family since 1926, Beauregard has never ceased to embellish and develop since its very beginnings. Its rich history and landscapes make it a must-see for lovers of the Loire Valley.
