With the Orangery, the Anne-of-Brittany Pavilion is the last trace of the royal gardens of Blois Castle. Set in the “lower gardens”, it is a unique example of early French 16th-century building Despite the presence of a private chapel, it is quite possible that this was built as a royal “pavilion”, i.e. a place to rest and relax. However, it may have had other purposes linked to the gardens. It might have been a place for quiet meditation, for holding private meetings, for romantic trysts, etc.
