  Chenonceau Swans: Henry and Diana
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The Château de Chenonceau situated on the Cher River which is a left tributary to the river Loire. The river suffered a devastating flood in 1940, which damaged Château de Chenonceau, which spans the river, and other structures along the banks.
Alongside the river, in the centre of the arbor and facing the caryatides, a maze with two thousand yews has been planted in the spirit of Catherine de' Medici's time, according to an Italian plan dating from 1720.
