This private chapel in the much-loved Château de Chenonceau was saved during the French Revolution by Madame Dupin who camouflaged its religious purpose by turning it into a wood storage area.

Chenonceau, originally constructed in the 1500s, bears the influence of a series of powerful noblewomen residents and is often referred to as the Château de Femmes.
