  1. Description of the castle
  2. Photo Gallery

Built by Jean Bourré, one of the principal advisers of the king Louis XI (1461-1483), the castle of Plessis constitutes the perfect compromise between the small fortified town and the palate of approval. Its ditches out of water, its white stone and its slate roofs gray confer a single aspect to him which classifies it among the prettiest florets of the Loire Valley.
