BLAISON-GOHIER PETITE CITE DE CARACTERE EN PAYS DE LA LOIRE

BLAISON-SAINT-SULPICE - 49
Heritage, authenticity and architecture at its best! To visit Blaison-Gohier is to take a step back in time. Certainly, this pretty Loire Valley village can date its past to prehistoric times, but its real importance grew in the 11th century, when King Fulk III, the Count of Anjou, built a church and established a chapter of canons and chaplains on this hilltop site. A castle was built at about the same time and parts of the walls still stand today dominating the landscape along with the ruins of 'moulin caviers' (windmills typical of the Anjou). With breathtaking views over the majestic Loire, Blaison-Gohier has 1,000 years of heritage and is today a popular stopover for visitors to the region. The richness and importance of its historic and religious architecture, the fascinating troglodyte homes carved into the local limestone rock, its wooded hillside landscapes and its history, all contribute to the coveted accolade: ‘Petite Cité de Caractère' Well worth a visit, the
