The Château de Suscinio was mainly used as a hunting lodge by the Dukes of Brittany in medieval times. Today, for some reason I could not fathom, it has been singled out from other similar fortresses for extensive restoration, and the results are already very impressive. We thought we "would just take a look," but ended up spending two hours there. In fact, the work of restoring the site, which is ongoing, is one of the more fascinating aspects of the visit itself. The castle is a large one and there are a number of ducal buildings that have been more or less completely restored and can be visited, the only drawback of the work to date perhaps being the use of concrete floors rather than wooden beams. Although this is in a somewhat remote corner of Brittany, being out on the Pointe de Rhuys peninsula, it is quite worth the visit and we were very glad we went.
