Chateau de Langeais and Tours

We visited our last castle on Thursday 13th April. This castle had wonderful rooms and especially wonderful tapestries. There were many examples of original furniture from the 15th and 16th century. Charles V111 married Anne of Brittany here secretly in 1491.

In the afternoon we caught the tram into Tours and visited the Cathedrale St-Gatien and visited the Musee Des Beaux-Arts in an old archbishop's palace. We then went into the old town for another yummy galette.

So much beauty everywhere the eye falls. Those tapestries are a true marvel. Enjoy every minute.
