Château de Chenonceau
The elegant arches spanning the River Cher make Château de Chenonceau one of the most photographed châteaux in France. Built in French Renaissance style with Gothic touches, it is famous for being shaped by women, earning itself the nickname Le Château des Dames (the Women’s Castle). The infamous bridge across the river was the vision of Diane de Poitiers, the mistress of Henry II who gifted the castle to her. The three-story gallery on top of the bridge was built on Catherine de’ Médici’s watch. The iconic building is the most visited chateau in the Loire Valley.
