Dark Past


View 2007 California & France on alexchan's travel map.

This city in the Loire valley has a dark history ... it was the slave trade capital in France and the hub of human trafficing from Africa to the new continent. But good on them for not sweeping this under the carpet.

The nice chateau forms the heart of the city and like most French cities it is rather pretty.
