On the next day of the Loire valley, excursion participants have a chance to venture Château de Chambord and The Château de Chenonceau with their guide.

Students were in front of Château de Chambord.

The Château de Chambord at Chambord, France, is one of the most recognizable châteaux in the world due to its distinctive French Renaissance architecture, which combines typical French medieval forms with classical Renaissance architecture.

Chambord is the largest château in the Loire Valley; it was built to serve as a hunting lodge for Francis.

Students learned about this historical landmark during their visit.

The Château de Chambord has further influenced a number of architectural and decorative elements across Europe. 

After visiting Château de Chambord, having lunch altogether everyone went for a visit to Château de Chenonceau; is one of the best-known châteaux of the Loire Valley.

It is the second most visited castle in France, after Versailles. This 16th-century castle is marvelously furnished.

It represents a type of architecture transitional between Gothic and Renaissance.

Chenonceau Castle is an exceptional site not only because of its original design, the richness of its collection.

The balance between nature and building is visible at Chenonceau.

The château’s grounds, which include French-style gardens by Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici, a labyrinth, and a vegetable garden, are particularly noteworthy.
