Here is another stop on bike trip, le château de Saumur.  What exists now was constructed in the 12th century.  And, the area around the town of Saumur is famous for its wines.

It was another grey day on the tour, but at least there was no rain or wind.

    1. Yes, it is a nice place to visit. It's in very good shape and has also has nice furnishings from the more recent residents.

    1. I think that is what they had in mind during those years when châteaux were more like fortresses than royal residences.
