Saumur Castle

Recommended
With its towers and sloping roofs, this château has a proud air to it, dominating the Loire from its pedestal. King René rebuilt this château as a "love mansion" in the 14C, adorning it with a well thought out decorative design in the Gothic style. At the end of the 16C, the château was again fortified, and today houses the Horse Museum and the Museum of Decorative Arts.
