A very well preserved medieval castle. An impressive construction with large walls and a beautiful interior. Inside you will find the beautiful Apocalypse Tapestry. The walk on the ramparts is also worth a visit, allowing you to see some impressive views on the city of Angers. Definitely worth the time spent there. The castle and a city visit can be done in a day trip from Paris, by train.
3 times I visited this amazing place on 3 French exchange trips. Amazing! If you get the chance to visit don't pass it by.
