France is a land of many splendored things, chief among them being the glorious chateaux which dot the Loire Valley and the Ile-de-France. Some started out as medieval stone donjons; others sprang to life as the magnificent Renaissance edifices built by the 15th and 16th century Valois kings, first in the Loire Valley and later in and around Paris; then came the the equally grand French Baroque style chateaux built around Paris by Bourbon royals and their peers.

On January 7, 2021, WICE, with  lecturer Russell Kelley, and in partnership with the Alliances Françaises of Miami and Chicago, offered a quick romp through ten of these edifices .  At present, every Thursday from January 21 through March 25, an individual chateau  will be spotlighted by its curator, manager, or owner. To review the podcasts of the chateaux already presented, or to attend the upcoming lectures, follow this link:
