Photographer's Note

The castle of Azay has been built during the creative period of the beginning of Francois the 1st reign. The castle is located in Touraine and it belongs to the prestigious Val de Loire castles, where French kings enjoyed to live for centuries.

The funny thing it that on its face, they wanted to copy Italian architecture creating arches and open windows.... But there in winter temperature is really different and the had to close all that things because it was really cold!!
