The Château of Saumur is located in the Pays de la Loire region, on the historic Kings’ Valley Route.

Since its construction at the end of the 11th century, the Château of Saumur has been a fortress, a manor house, a residence for the town governors, a prison, and even an arms and ammunitions depot.

The château, overlooking the town and the majestic Loire, was bought from the state in 1906 by the town of Saumur which, after having restored part of it, used it to set up the town’s museum.

The Château de Saumur now houses the Museum de Saumur and the Museum de Cheval. In the summer three times a week, a magical sound and light show traces centuries of history through equestrian stunts, special effects and giant projections
