Chateau Chenonceau & the Tours Cathedral: Saint Martin de Tours


The French Countryside….from a bus window

Our tour today took us through the French countryside to the Chateau Chenonceau, a French chateau that was literally created by women.  I don’t have time to explain but it began with a King’s girlfriend to whom he gave the property and after his death the Queen snatched it back from the girlfriend!

Yes, it was built over a river

We are tired so I’ll make this short. We went to the Chateau Chenonceau and to another,the Chateau Amboise and then to the old part of Tours.

We had dinner at the hotel and we’re calling it a night.  See you tomorrow.
