Description

GUIDED TOUR OF THE CASTLE OF CHENONCEAU 10H00
Owned by the Crown, then royal residence, Château de Chenonceau is an exceptional site, not only for its original design, the richness of its collections, furniture and decoration, but also for its destiny, since it was loved, administered and protected by women, all extraordinary and most of whom have left their mark on history. "Château des Dames" for the history of France, built in 1513 by Katherine Briçonnet, successively embellished by Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Médicis, Chenonceau was saved from the rigours of the Revolution by Madame Dupin
