"Looming on a rocky escarpment, Blois’ historic chateau (formerly the feudal seat of the powerful counts of Blois) has been repeatedly redeveloped over the last seven centuries, and its grand halls, spiral staircases and sweeping courtyards provide a whistle-stop tour through the key periods of French architecture. Blois suffered heavy bombardment during WWII, and the modern-day town is mostly the result of speedy postwar reconstruction. Inland from the river the twisting streets of the old town give you some idea of how Blois might have looked to its medieval inhabitants; and if you’re suffering from chateau fatigue, there are some intriguing diversions to explore, including a museum of magic."
