We travelled from St Malo to visit and it was worth the drive, the castle is virtually complete so you can get a glimpse of what medieval life was like. The only downside is the annoying American accent on the "ENGLISH" audio

It's all been said by previous reviewers: Chateau de Fougeres is absolutely stunning, virtually complete and not even expensive to visit. If you take one of the audio guides (free) in the language of your choice you will learn about the history and features displayed before you.

Possibly, clearly there are a lot of contenders but the Chateau de Fougeres has to be on the top 10 list of castles of the world.
