The Chambord Castle in the Loire Valley, France

This is the first photo of a series (coming up soon) dedicated to the Loire Valley (la vallee de la Loire), where several beautiful castles from before and after the Renaissance period (early 1500s) were built.

 

I just spent a fantastic weekend (September 15-16, 2007) visiting the area (between the cities of Orleans and Tours along the Loire river) and started my visit with this castle above, Chambord! It was simply breathtaking.
