Things to do in  Chinon

Welcome to Chinon

Chinon’s medieval and Roman roots are on display at the town’s royal fortress, the hilltop Château de Chinon, which presides over the western Loire Valley town. Some of the top things to do in Chinon include climbing the crumbling Tour de l’Horloge (Clock Tower) for views along the Vienne River, visiting the Joan of Arc Museum, and strolling through the cobbled lanes and half-timbered townhouses of the town below. Beyond that, be sure to escape to the surrounding vineyards, which produce some of the Loire Valley’s most notable red and rosé wines.
