In mid-September 2020, I drove through several villages along the Loire River in the Loiret Department in North-Central France. This posts features  four albums with some of the more interesting locations there.

Huisseau-sur-Mauves

Huisseau-sur-Mauves was the first stop. Technically, it is not on the Loire, but as I drove by I noticed what appears to be the remains of a medieval fortress and elected to take a couple of quick shots. The remains are connected to a more modern château that appears to have been built on top of a more ancient fortress.

Meung-sur-Loire

Meung-sur-Loire was my second stop. The small town is best known for its château, the Château de Meung-sur-Loire, which I had visited years ago. An interesting part of this album was the remains of a bridge.

Beaugency

Beaugency was my third stop. Like all towns in this region, it has its own château. However, the most interesting place was the a medieval tower from the 11th century, the Tour César, right next to the château. The small canals also adds to the ambient.

Muides-sur-Loire

Lastly, I stopped at Muides-sur-Loire for some quick takes on the bridge and the birds in the middle of the Loire.
