Tourism

Tourism in Tours is primarily about the Loire Valley castles, as evidenced by our motto, "Tours, the Capital of the Loire Valley Castles."

The Loire Valley Castles

Impregnated with royalty, the Loire Valley castles are true treasures to discover. Located in the Loire Valley, a region classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, these castles are simply Wonders of France.

Most of these castles were built during the Renaissance period when the Kings of France established themselves in the Loire Valley. Château d'Ussé, Château d'Azay-le-Rideau, Château de Villandry, Château de Loches, Château d'Amboise, Château de Chenonceau... these are some of the Loire Valley castles closest to the Brit Hotel in Tours.

Below is a video featuring six imposing Loire Valley castles: Amboise, Chenonceau, Chambord, Ussé, Azay-le-Rideau, and Cheverny.

The City of Tours

The people of Tours welcome you to their city of Tours. As the prefecture of the Indre-et-Loire department, Tours has more than 300,000 inhabitants. Here are some ideas for visits in Tours:

Tours Castle

Once, the Royal Castle of Tours was partly built in wood during the Carolingian dynasty. In the 11th century, the castle was rebuilt to be more imposing, in stone, under the rule of Geoffrey Martel, who appropriated the Touraine region.

All visits to Tours Castle take place from Tuesday to Sunday from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm; admission is free.

Cathedral of Saint Gatien in Tours

The Tours Cathedral is unique in its construction. Indeed, it took almost 400 years to build. Originally designed in the Romanesque style, the building gradually became a Gothic cathedral as it was being built. As a result, it is classified as a historical monument.

The Tours Cathedral is the final resting place of the children of Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany (originating from Nantes) (link).

Tours Botanical Garden

Built on the site of the former "Saint-Anne" stream that connected the Cher and the Loire, this botanical garden can boast of being one of the oldest parks of its kind, as it was built from 1831 to 1843.

Botany enthusiasts will be delighted with this Tours Garden, which showcases numerous species, including the oldest one, the "ginkgo biloba," and the "giant sequoia."

The Touraine greenhouses were renovated in 2007 to host different plants from South Africa, tropical countries, etc.

Also, to delight children, a mini-farm is set up, and various exotic species can be encountered.

Museum of Fine Arts

The Museum of Fine Arts in Tours is housed in one of the most beautiful squares in Touraine: the Archbishops' Palace of Tours.

Classified, of course, as a Historical Monument since 1983, it holds multiple treasures seized from bastides and churches in Touraine since 1792, an emblematic year of the end of the Monarchy.

The Museum of Fine Arts in Tours opened to the public in 1795.

In front of this palace, a French-style garden has been laid out. Symbolizing the opulence of Touraine, a Lebanese cedar, as large as it is wide, about thirty meters, was planted in 1804.
