One Thing, Three Ways: Exterior of Chateau Royal de Blois
The Chateau Royal de Blois has four distinct wings around a single courtyard, each one corresponding to a distinct period and style: Gothic, Flamboyant, Renaissance, and Classicism. The 19th and 20th Century restorations complete the architectural history of the castle.
What do you think? Do you have a favorite shot below?
