What to expect

The château d'Angers was built in the 13th century and enlarged in the 14th century by the dukes of Angers. With seventeen towers and a circumference of 500 metres, this fortress is characteristic of medieval times. Would you like to admire the largest and oldest collection of medieval drapes in the world? Enjoy a visit to the main room of the castle and discover the 100-metre-long Tapestry of the Apocalypse, a wonderful historical, political and social testimony of medieval society in the 14th century. Outside the castle, walk along the terraces of the garden, composed of yews, boxwood, rose bushes and other natural treasures. Overlook the ramparts of the fortress and immerse yourself in a unique and refined panorama.
