A wonderful castle to visit by all ages. Plenty of opportunity for 'make-believe' in this well-preserved castle. Be prepared to climb a few towers but you get different views of the town walls and other places to visit from the top. The medieval town below is also well worth a walk through as is the church, belfry and the public... More

A large 12th century castle built on a rocky outcrop surrounded by the loop of the Nancon river acting as a natural moat. It consist of three walled enclosures, an outer defense, an area for the population during siege, and the keep, the Baron de Fougeres residence. The castle has a spectacular layout along with 13 towers. Over the centuries... More

This Medieval Fortress is at the very heart of Fougeres, from the beautiful lake to the ramparts it could only be traditional French, the multiple waterwheels are amazing as are the immaculate grounds. Highly Recommended

This is a very large castle set in the middle of a beautiful town. It is well preserved with huge walls. Set on a hill side, the walls get higher as you move further in.

This is one of the best medival castles so far we visited in Europe. It is a beauty. Especially, it provided free audio around the castle. The audio did a good job to give information about the history of the castle. With the audio, you would enjoy the castle more. The ticket for the castle allow you to visit all... More

I am very interested in history and had just read a book about Anne of Brittany, the last Duchess of Brittany (she is not mentioned here) but the Chateau tour tells the story of the Dukes of Brittany including the fate of her father, Francis II. There is an excellent (free) audio tour of the castle with lots of commentary... More

Fougeres castle is everything an ancient castle should be with most, towers, turrets and ramparts. We walked the old city walls before paying to enter the inside of the castle. As a rock band wave rehearsing for a concert that evening, we paid 5 euros instead of the usual 8.30 euros entry. The audio tour is available in several languages... More

It's a castle that tells the story of military architecture throughout several centuries . Beautiful restaured , but when they tell us that it's the biggest mediaeval castle in Europe they are wrong . I've been to several others which were older and bigger , but it still is a fine place to visit . I visited the castle on... More
