Photographer's Note

Chenonceaux Région Centre Département Indre-et-Loire (37)
The castle is composed of a rectangular main building with turrets with the angles. It sat on the two piles of the old mill which rest on the bed of Cher. On left thre are, projecting, the bookshop and the vault. On the bridge of Expensive rises the gallery on two floors of Catherine de Médicis. This construction of Philibert Delorme is of an already traditional sobriety which contrasts with the aspect rich and merry that gives, the older part, sculptures of the balustrades, the roof and the attic windows.
