Montbazon is a commune in the Indre-et-Loire department in central France. It is located on the river Indre between the towns of Veigné, Monts and Sorigny. The town is about 12 km from Tours.


In 991, friars of Cormery complained to the king that Fulk Nerra, lord of Anjou, was building a fortress in their land of Montbazon (he became lord of Montbazon in 997 although he was 17 years old).

From 994, the lofty fortress dominated a strategic point on the Indre river.



Montbazon has a small industrial park. It groups together small and medium-sized businesses.


There are four schools in the town:

  • Jean Le Bourg kindergarten
  • Guillaume Louis Primary School
  • Albert Camus High School
  • Saint Gatien Private High School


There are two buses lines (G and H) which cross the town. Four bus stops are located at:

  • City Center
  • Albert Camus High School
  • La Courtille
  • La Grange Barbier


The town launched an online radio station in 2010.[1]
