Azay-le-Rideau - the interior

Last time we were at Azay-le-Rideau, museum staff called a wildcat strike and the château, which is a national monument in the care of the national museum service, was closed. Still, I was delighted by the detail on the stable roof and took lots of photos.

This time, I was just as delighted by the wealth of architectural and interior detail.

I love these old buildings in France, the architecture is so interesting. Diane

Great pictures. The hardware on the 16th century furniture is fascinating. It looks similar to English furniture of that period. Love the carved faces as well.

I like Azay-le-Rideau because it is small (relatively speaking) and not overwhelming like Chambord.
