I went there with my friends to visit the symbol of Angers city. The chateau was incredible by its size and the way people had built it throughout so many years. Everything is being kept in very good condition, but there are few doors being...More

Very impressive castle, but the real highlight is the incredible tapestry. Well worth a visit if anywhere in this part of France.

Visitors from the UK to the Loire Valley chateaux should not expect the graceful, chocolate-box-lid prettiness of Angers' peers further up the river. This is no Azay-le-Rideau, Blois or Amboise. This is a fortified castle, an offensive/defensive structure, a sign of royal might. Those who...More
