The Royal Chateau of Blois is your gateway into the Val de Loire. The Royal Chateau of Blois is the first important place to discover as you come from Paris. It is a true synthesis of the art and history of the Loire Valley chateaux, and makes it an ideal introduction for your visit.The rich architecture of the four different wings echoes the diversity of styles of the many chateaux built in the Loire Valley from the Middle Ages to the 17th Century.
Wonderful and unique chateau with facades facing courtyard in four different styles. The interior is flamboyant and colourful and there's a small art gallery as a part of the exhibition. Very much worth its money. One of the must see chateaus in the Loire Valley.

The children's playground really helped provide a break for our toddler, and children up to about ten years old were enjoying it. The Gardens are pretty, and the view over Blois and the Loire river was great. Sat on a bench for a while enjoying the view of the Gardens below; did not go down a level to walk through the Gardens, although others did so. Then we went to the playground, which was mostly shaded. Very nice.

We went into the tourist office as we were dues to meet a tour guide there. Not one member of the staff spoke to us, approached us, asked us if we needed any help or if we were OK, even though we sat on stools looking at literature for at least 10 minutes. Disappointing.

This is not one of the most impressive cathedrals in France but it is all Blois has to offer so spend a few hours and visit this remarkable building. Late Gothic, the church as had a long and difficult history and little remains of the original structure. Between storms and wars it has been reconstructed and/or rehabilitated right up thru the twentieth century. If you have a full day to spend in Blois, park in the public lot next to the chateau then, in this order, visit the Chateau, the old city neighborhood under the chateau, walk to the Cathedral and, last, hotel de ville.

There are some places that seem to exude peace, tranquillity, even a spirituality. Religious or not I don't think you will be untouched by the patina of prayer this ancient building displays in its stones, altar, side chapels and most magnificent model stained glass windows. After wandering through the old quarter of Blois it is very difficult not to end up at the Abbey. Do venture in - it is well worth it.

At the top of these partially blue stairs in the center of the city, we relished the view of the street running straight through Blois. If you're standing at the top of the stairs, I highly recommend starting by looking at the view below you and then allowing your gaze to follow the street as far out from where you're standing as you can. A very cool, scenic view awaits.

This is an interesting church in this pretty town. Enjoy the peacefulness, the tranquillity and if you are fortumnate to hit on a service time enjoy the moving ritual of the Mass and stay awhile , compose yourselves and feel a quietude which is very uplifting.
Not as grand as the main church but nonetheless a worthwhile visit

I guess it`s ok if you visit with children, otherwise I wouldn`t bother. The interactive exibition on the gound floor is interesting and there is a part about the history of magic but the signage is poor and it was very crowded during our visit so we couldn`t really enjoy it. The first floor was pretty boring except for a lady doing a card trick show. I liked the illusions on the third floor and the show that runs a few times a day is ok for kids but I found the place pretty chaotic - working hours, signage, show time, everything.

A slightly out of the way museum of Lettrisme and the work of Dadaists, Surrealists and French conceptual artists such as Duschamp and others such as Dali and Man Ray and later international art stars such as the group Fluxus which has local roots. This is a living institution, not the usual dead collection. This museum has an excellent **top rate** cafe which is undiscovered. The aim of the museum is to make you rethink what art is, what it is for and how it can improve and ennoble your life. This is a must see and proof that locals still have tricks up their sleeves.
