Recently discovered paintings by Caravagio are now exposed in a special museum. The Dungeon built by Foulques Nera( over 1000 yrs ago) dominates the countryside, while the Logis Royal housed the King's favourites!

¤The town has lovely parcs and walks, and offers many memorable restaurants.

¤ The Lochois has superb forests inviting long walks or bike rides along well manicured paths. Ancient
towns/villages founded by templar knights (Beaulieu-les-Loches,St Jean, St Germain, St Hippolyte, etc)
