Back in the Touraine, we are still taking day trips with our California friends. Wednesday we ventured to the historic town of Loches. It's a good sized town, with a market on Wednesday (one reason for going - we picked up some asparagus and strawberries), and a historic medieval city on the bluff in the center that overlooks a great, green valley.

Geraniums in a window.

Stained glass in the renaissance Logis Royal.

After walking around in the marketplace, we drove up to the cité médiéval for a quick look before lunch. We found a pizzeria and enjoyed lunch, then hiked back up to the cité and went into the renaissance château first, then over to the medieval castle. More pictures to follow.

  1. Merci, Walt, pour ces 2 commentaires sur Loches dont j'ai beaucoup aimé la visite sous la houlette de Ken, et en compagnie de nos chers Alabamians :-)

    Comme tu le dis, la visite est très intéressante et les vues du haut de la tour sont superbes ! J'ai appris tout plein de choses grâce au commentaire audio dans la salle des Gardes ! Très chouette, cet endroit qui nous fait mieux comprendre comment vivaient nos ancêtres ! Bises. Marie (Normandie, France)


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
