A worthwhile visit to a historic castle

Set in the old town of Fougeres this castle has a wealth of history and is well worth a visit. There is an entrance fee to pay.

If you are travelling to Fougeres, then do it on a Saturday, as the market is on as an added attraction, but packs up about 1pm. Pleny of free parking about. Visit the infomation centre and they will give you a map, with a guided walk with details in english. The Chateau was under 9 euros to get in, but... More

This is our second visit to the castle and we were impressed even more this time. A stunning castle, with an almost Disneyesque quality. The displays within the various towers are of a high quality, and if you are even vaguely interested in History or Archtecture this is not to be missed. Allow 2 -4 hours particularly if you use...

Surprisingly beautiful! Not very famous and touristic, but very nice. They say it's the biggest remaining medieval fortress in Europe..

A stunning castle with an interesting history. A lot to see, including fantastic views over the town. An interesting & informative audio guide is provided. Well worth the 8.50 Euro per person entrance fee. We spent about 2-3 hours there in total.

Our BnB suggested we go and take the tour. Picked up a map of Fougere from the ISight and walked the town finishing at the ruins of the chateau. Used the audio in English to hear how the buildings were used and how were eventually captured. Found out why left handed people were though bad in the old ages. Good... More

We found the chateau so fascinating and so old. We spent a lot of time there before taking a little tourist train all around the city. A most enjoyable day out.

Arrived here in the evening. So missed all the tours but walked around the ramparts and was blown way by the views and the sheer magnitude of this castle. Will definitely be back one day for a proper look inside. Totally awesome place!
