More from Blois

Let's go inside! As you'll see, the château is very reserved and understated in its interior design. (Yeah, that's likely.) :)

As always, click on the photos for bigger versions...


Understated fireplace



Love the tiles


All of the châteaus (or at least all of the ones we have seen) have their own chapels, so the royals could be good Christians while oppressing their subjects. If nothing else, that has left lots of pretty stained glass around...






No idea what this is, but it's impressive!


The salamander is an important figure in French royalty and is found in many of their homes...



Okay, we'll stop there for now. Plenty more to come! :)
