Here is Part Deux of my selection of photos from my recent trip to the Loire. My last post focused on the fields and countryside, so this time I am turning my attention to the built features.
The Loire region is scattered with chateaux and abbeys and we chose a handful of the ones nearby to visit. Our first stop was at Fontevraud Abbey which has certainly seen a lot of activity in its long history – it was even used as a prison until the 1960s.
We later visited Montreuil-Bellay Chateau for a guided tour and a spot of wine sampling.
However, some of the more ‘ordinary’ building also caught my eye.
