“Azay-le-Rideau, and elsewhere dotted throughout the district of Touraine, the delightful chateaux of the nobility bear witness to the memorable times when Francis held his court on the banks of the Loire.”
— from “The Story of the Art of Building” 1901 By Percy Leslie Waterhouse

As you climb the castle’s staircase, look up and you will see several someones looking down at you! The ceiling is carved with wonderful portrait medallions of the kings and queens of France.

You will also find on the ceiling the ‘B’ of the Marquis de Biencourt, owner of the château from 1791 to late 19th century.
