Photographer's Note

The castle consists of four parts built at various times: the tower Frotier (end of 15th century), the wing of Humières (middle of 17th century), the house of François I (16th century), and the Breteuil house (18th century). The common areas, known as the Cingé wing, are from the 17th century.
Several great families were owners of AZAY-le-FERRON, in particular Gregoire Michel, banker for Napoleon’s armies. In the 19th century the castle was sold in life annuity to the Luzarche family, a family of master blacksmiths. In 1950, Mrs. Hersent, daughter of Mrs. Luzarche, bequeathed the castle and the grounds to the town of Tours.
