The architectural heritage of the French kings is nowhere as present as in the Loire valley. Magnificent castles, sophisticated gardens, and sweeping parks demonstrate both the monarchs™ power and appreciation of art, attracting and fascinating uncounted visitors to this day. Sixty of these works of art have been captured in brilliant color photographs for this book: the Hall of the States General at Blois, the Saumur and Angers fortresses, the picture-postcard castle of Azay-le-Rideau built in the middle of a river, and, impressive and shrouded in legend, the massive Chambord castle. The substantial texts describing individual castles are complemented by a map, a timetable, a genealogy of the kings of France, a glossary, and a bibliography. This is a fascinating book for all lovers of the Loire valley, all travelers, and anyone with an interest in history.
