The Royal Abbey a unique heritage
Arrival at the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud for a visit. The Royal Abbey is a unique place for its rich history intimately linked to the history of France and even Europe. It is also a unique place by its configuration. You do not need to know the whole chronology of Fontevraud to take full advantage of the size of a millenary site and participating in the inscription of the Loire Valley World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
The royal fortress of Chinon
After the visit, departure for Chinon free time for lunch then visit the Royal Fortress: built on a rocky outcrop dominating the Vienne and the city. The site of the fortress has been occupied for three thousand years, as revealed by recent archaeological excavations. The fortress built by the Count of Blois Thibaut 1st evokes the time when the history of France and England was intertwined and then continue to enjoy the wealth of West Touraine of this small town at your own pace.
