Loches constituted during all the Average Age a strategic place of first order. Located with the borders of Poitou, Touraine and Berry, planted on a long rocky outcrop, it attracted initially the covetousness of the dukes of Aquitaine, of the counts of Blois-Chartres and those of Anjou. It was then the stake of a rough fight between Capétiens and Plantagenêts, was used a long time as residence to "King de Bourges" (the future Charles VII) and its walls sheltered the youths of the life of Louis XI.
