The castle of Azay le Rideau was built between 1515 and 1527 on the site of an earlier medieval castle, on an island in the middle of the Indre river. It is a relatively small castle with an L-shape and towers with conical spires at each corner. The castle lies in a beautiful and very charming setting, with very scenic reflections on the Indre river. The interior rooms are richly decorated and have furniture and tapestries hanging from the walls.
