Church on Sunday...well another chapel actually.

When we visited the 'International Garden Festival' at Chaumont-sur-Loire back in August we decided to take in the chateau visit as well as it had been a long time since our last visit. We decided that the additional  € 4.00  would be worth it.,(€ 14.00 to visit garden festival € 18.00 to include chateau).The interior of the chateau is a poor second to its fairytale exterior but then there is the 'art' ( a collection of contemporary instalations ) and the view from the courtyard over the river Loire.Which leads us (eventually) to the chapel inside the chateau which has become part of the 'art' .

It has taken on a fairytale-esque quality but in a rather cluttered fashion which will, I'm sure, be interpreted in different ways by the many visitors who pear into it.I tried to find out more as to who's idea it was and what it might represent...without success.

Is it worth the the additional charge, if it's your first visit to 'Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire' then yes it is and you can form your own opinion with regards to the 'art' content.
