The Cité Royale of Loches

At 25 minutes. Go back in time and discover one of the most beautiful fortified cities in France.

The Dungeon, 36 meters high, was built by a count of Anjou, Foulques Nerra, at the beginning of the 11th century. If it is among the most imposing of its time in Europe, it is also one of the best preserved. A model of military architecture, it was transformed into a royal prison by Louis XI.
