Very beautiful sound and light show. The castle is really beautiful. Different types of architecture to discover. Very interesting.
Awesome château with a great interactive tablet-guide that allows you to go back in time and see some rooms as they were. The lights show is extremely detailed and well done, with a few stories of events that happened in the castle. Highly recommend!
The Royal Chateau Royal de Blois was awesome on our most recent trip we spent a better part of the day enjoying all the beauty and small and big things to see. It's a fantastic mix of history and beauty all in one place, if you get a chance to visit it would be worth the time :).
