Sitting comfortably on the banks of the illustrious River Loire is the beautiful town of Langeais. With a history stretching back to Gallo-Roman times, the history is evident everywhere you look, starting with the town’s stunning 15th century cathedral. This amazing and imposing Cathedral, where Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany were married in 1491, was originally built as a medieval castle, and later rebuilt as a chateau. Dominating the town, you can see it as you wander the town’s medieval streets. It’s possible to sit and have a coffee at one of the lovely cafes terraces with the cathedral in full view. Even though the cathedral is the main pull, there’s a lovely old church, and behind it, steps taking you up to a splendid viewing point over the town’s main attractions - worth the climb. Look out over the hillside peppered with ancient stone homes. Then, wander the lovely streets of Langeais, crossing a lovely little canal. If you’re there on a Sunday, be sure to visit the local, traditional French market.
