Description: Loches constituted during all the Middle Age a strategic place of first order. Located at the borders of Poitou, Touraine and Berry, planted on a long rocky outcrop, it attracted initially the covetousness of the dukes of Aquitaine, of the counts of Blois-Chartres and those of Anjou. It was then the stake of a rough fight between CapÚtiens and Plantagenets. It was used a long time as residence to "King de Bourges" (the future Charles VII) and its walls sheltered the youths of the life of Louis XI of whom one of his favourite prisons, "the cage", remains in the basements of the dungeon.
