Features of France

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.
