The Royal City of Loches pays tribute to its famous prisoner
With the launch of its Histopad and an exhibition dedicated to Ludovico Sforza, a major patron of Leonardo da Vinci, the Royal City of Loches is unearthing new surprises from its dungeons!
From January, the Royal City of Loches will be equipped with new Histopads to offer the public a new visitor experience. Ten spaces have been reconstituted in their former condition from the 11th to the 15th centuries, with virtual decor that visitors can play and interact with. One of the many new features is the re-creation of the historic scene in which they will be able to witness the siege against the King of England by King Philip Augustus of France in 1205. In addition, the Royal City is holding a fascinating exhibition on Ludovico Sforza, one of the major patrons of Leonardo da Vinci. Objects of art and graphic documents will illustrate the personality and unique role of the Duke of Milan in the growth of a new style of art represented in particular by Leonardo da Vinci.
