Photographer's Note

BOURGUEIL V
After visiting the vines and cellars in the Bourgueil area and the little town of Candes-St-Martin (see the note and WS on my previous posting), we took a trip on the river Loire, where we could enjoy a different view of the basilica and other beautiful buildings.
This was built in the 12th and 13th centuries, and was then fortified in the 15th century; so, it's a mixture of Romanesque, Gothic and military architecture. Of course, it's built in the omnipresent tuffeau stone of the region, as are all the houses surrounding it.
In my next posting, I shall post a picture of Montsoreau chateau, just a few KM down the Loire from Candes.
