Richelieu is a commune in the Indre-et-Loire department in central France.  It lies south of Chinon and west of Sainte-Maure de Touraine and is surrounded by mostly agricultural land. Its inhabitants are called Richelais, and Richelaises.  Because of its design as the “ideal city” of the seventeenth century, the town is the subject of protective measures for its architecture.
