In the Centre-Loire Valley, you can visit the town of Gien which is on the Loire river, in the Loiret department to the southeast of Orleans, and a few kilometers north-east of Briare. A large part of the Gien town center was destroyed during the Second World War, and much of what you see today is a post-war reconstruction. This reconstruction has been carried out very carefully and evokes the feel of a much older town center, but also means the town you see today is very different from the one that you would have seen 100 years ago and there is a substantial amount of modern development. Although it is on the Loire river, note that Gien is quite a distance east of the most famous of the Loire Valley castles and towns.
You can also visit the Saint-Benoit-sur-Loire Abbey on the Loire river in the Loiret department, to the southeast of Orleans. It is the benedictine abbey that dominates the village that is the main reason visitors come to this location, as well as numerous pilgrims. The abbey is also referred to as the Abbey de Fleury. The abbey church at Saint-Benoit-Sur-Loire is a beautifully maintained and restored example of 12th-century religious architecture. The church dates back from the 11th century (and built on the site of an even older religious edifice that had been destroyed) the Abbey of Saint-Benoit-sur-Loire is one of the best examples of Roman-style churches in France and contains numerous features of interest.
Visit Briare in the Centre-Loire Valley, located southeast of Orleans, towards the eastern edge of the Loire Valley region.
