Famous French writer Rabelais (16th century) set a part of his novel Gargantua in Touraine!

He even talked about castle of Rivau!

But not only: do you know Joan of Arc spent a night, here in 1428, while she was going towards Orléans?

Her horse and her soldiers needed a good rest before the attack!
