Old Chinon

Recommended
You can see the remains of timber-framed Medieval houses while roaming Chinon's alleys, notably in Rue Voltaire or Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau. The Grand Carroi was the town centre in Medieval times. Along the way, you'll see churchs such as St. Étienne or St-Mexme from the 10C and 11C, as well as the St. Radegonde Chapel.
