Photographer's Note

Discovered by accident, this disused well was found in the Cite Medievale de Loches when an an old gate was opened briefly by some workers.
The medieval town is contained within a continuous wall some 1000m long in which there are only two gates.
Interesting features within the walls apart from the well are
Eglise St. Ours a church with its Aggevin porch built around a Romanesque portal, and pyramid vaults in its naive.
Chateau Loches begun at the end of the 14th century as an extension of the 13th century watch tower known as Agnes Sorel's Tower.
There are a lot more interesting things to see within the Cite Medievale and it is well worth setting aside time to discover all the treasures it has to reveal if you are ever in Loche.
