The Loire Valley of France is a historic place in English and French history. The Kings of England for centuries lived here. Henry II and his son, Richard the Lionhearted are buried here. Emily and I stayed in Tours while we drove to through the valley to visit historic sites. The mornings were usually foggy and this added to the lore of this special valley. This page has some views of the valley and some links to the sites we visited.
