Personal interest 1

It is amazing that the castle is hundreds of years old, and yet it stand upright. The architecture is intresting, because the catle still stands. The many graphics and things used to build the castle are from different countries. The structure by wich the castle was build is nice, because there is a hall and many sculptures in it.



Personal interest 2

It is hard to believe that the castle was abandoned in the beginning of the 17th century. The castle declined after the French wars of religion. The peace of Amboise was signed in the 1500’s.
