Magnifique parc, un lieu très spécial de part son histoire.

Les châteaux de la Loire n'ont qu'à bien se tenir. Le parc est magnifique . Le château est digne des plus grands.

Stunning chateau and grounds so well worth a visit. It was disappointing not to be allowed to go inside the Chateau itself, although we did sneak a quick look through a window to see a lovely room. The history of the chateau was fascinating.

Solo hay una visita guiada a la semana. Es muy bonito, pero no sé visita el castillo por dentro. Esta habitado aunque no de forma permanente. La traducción al español del folleto nefasta y solo hablan francés.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
