Travel Tips for Blois

Go to the Gaston d'Orleans Wing

by hquittner

Gaston d’Orleans was the brother of Louis XIII who was childless. He and his sons were next in line for the throne and he always was plotting to leverage his position. When the 72 yr. old Louis sired a son, he banished Gaston to Blois. Gaston still had plans and money and hired Mansart to build his wing at Blois from 1635-38. Finally Louis cut off his funds and worked stopped. Gaston lived at Blois in the Francois Wing until he died in1660. The wing was finished in the 19C and is now the regional library. It has a central pavilion and wings with 3 floors. The grand staircase adjusts the alignment between the two facade sizes and leads up to a cupola. The facades are classical with pilasters usually in pairs ascending Doric, Ionic, Corinthian. There is little sculpture work except for “slaves” over the angled pediment and a bust of Gaston. It is impressive to look up from the central hall and see the overhanging galleries and the bas-relief trophies and other decorations

CHATEAU DE BLOIS

by Helga67

Gothic: The 13th century medieval fortress .

The seignorial hall, known as the Hall of the Estates General, is the most important vestige from the medieval fortress that was built by the counts of Blois from the 10th century onwards.

THE QUEEN'S BEDROOM

by Helga67

This is the bedroom of Catherine de Medici, who passed away here on 5 January 1589. The mural decoration was created after Renaissance textile patterns. The omnipresent monogram of Henri II and Catherine de Medici is composed of an H and two interlaced C's.

Blois

by Helga67

Blois is one of the small cities in the Loire Valley with an old part (Quartier Vieux Blois) with nice narrow alleys, a beautiful cathedral and an interesting castle full of history. And if that is not enough, do some shopping or enjoy one of the local pubs.
