What to expect

The Angers Castle was built in the 13th century and expanded in the 14th century by the Dukes of Angers. With seventeen towers and a circumference of 500 meters, this fortress is characteristic of the medieval era. Do you want to admire the largest and oldest collection of medieval tapestries in the world? Take a visit to the main room of the castle and discover the Tapestry of the Apocalypse, which is 100 meters long, a marvelous historical, political, and social testimony of medieval society in the 14th century. Outside the castle, stroll along the rows of the garden, composed of yews, boxwoods, rose gardens, and other natural treasures. Overlook the fortress ramparts and immerse your gaze in a unique and pristine panorama.
