Located in the heart of the town of Angers lies a medieval fortress called Château d’Angers. The structure oozes romance and history - it was founded in the 9th century by the Counts of Anjou and expanded in the 13th century by the young Saint-Louis, son of King Louis VIII, because of its strategic position next to the Maine River. Featuring 17 towers, the massive medieval fortifications have an almost fairy-tale-like charm to them!

Inside, enjoy priority access and discover an actual treasure: the famed Apocalypse tapestry. At 140m in length, it is the largest woven work of medieval art and depicts the historical, social, and political context of the 14th century in France – the time of the Hundred Years War, plague, and famine. It took seven years to complete and its six-meter-high panels, which depict 90 scenes, are beautifully lit in a well-lit gallery. Stroll through the rest of the fortress and admire the residential buildings and carefully tended gardens that grow in the now dried-up moats. While you’re here, don’t miss the chance to walk along the ramparts of the château to get a panoramic view of Angers.
