Biography/History

Tours and Touraine (France) remained until the 16th century a continual stay of the kings and Court. The permanent return of the Court towards Paris then Versailles marked the beginning of a slow but permanent decline in the 18th century. The arrival of the railroad in the 19th century saved the city by making it an important crossroads.
