Chinon


Chinon, France


Chinon is a lovely town close to the Loire Valley in France. 

Chateau de Chinon, France


It has a ruined citadel on top of the hill. 

Joan of Arc


This is where I developed an interest in Joan of Arc.  It is here in Chinon in 1429 that she was said to have recognised the Dauphin despite him being disguised and asked to head an army.  (long story)

If you love France and history, don't miss it if you have a chance.
