La ville de Blois et la Loire le soir - P. Bousseaud Blois

The magic of the Royal City

The Château of Blois has always attracted sovereigns. Louis XII added a wing to it, while his nephew, son-in-law and successor François I contributed the outside staircase that gives the building its characteristic silhouette. The Château certainly worked its charms on its royal owners, to say the least...

By coincidence or by magic, the monument is opposite... the Magic Centre with its exhibition, courses and shows around the art of prestidigitation. Then head off into the heart of the Royal City to discover hidden courtyards where nothing appears to have changed for centuries. Blois is magic.
