    Located in "Most beautiful village" of Candes-Saint-Martin, is the chapel Saint Martin. The Church is known for the many statues that decorate its facade, and for the stained glass windows tracing the story of the relics of Saint Martin.
    The church was built in the 12th century, although much of the decoration was added three centuries later.

    Located a few kms from Chinon

    Right behind the Chinon Castle, on the hill slope not really frequented by tourists, there is a full size trebuchet - a medieval siege weapon used to hurl stones and other nasty things in the enemy camp.
