Quite an impressive castle, as it is huge. Surrounded by what seems to be a small river, it still has 13 standing towers. It is truly one of the best preserved fortified castles in France and maybe even in all of Europe. There are 3 enclosures: the first one to protect the actual castle itself. The second one where everyday living occurred and where people fled when the castle was attacked. The third one to protect the keep.
Audio machines were handed to us to help us understand the background of every tower, moat and enclosures. It was a good walking opportunity. The view from the top gave us a splendid view of our surroundings and of Fougeres itself.
