Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne

Château des Ducs de Bretagne
Part of Google Earth's imagery update today is more recent imagery of Nantes in France. Google Maps doesn't normally get the new imagery until a week or two later. You can see this clearly in this satellite view of Château des Ducs de Bretagne in Nantes, France.

In Google Maps the château is clearly undergoing some kind of renovation and in the new imagery in Google Earth all the buildings are gleaming white. In fact the château was closed for three years whilst it underwent restoration and was reopened to the public again in February of this year.
