The Royal Château de Blois is located in the Loir-et-Cher département in the Loire Valley. It is in the centre of the modern city of Blois.

It consists of a number of buildings built between the 13th and 17th centuries. These are centred around a main courtyard.

One of these was the home of the famous French magician Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin (December 6, 1805 ? June 13, 1871). He has the honour of being the father of modern conjuring and is thought to be the inspiration for Harry Houdini.
