Create an itinerary including Chateau de Fougeres
Built on a naturally protected site, Chateau de Fougeres is on a rock emerging from a swamp surrounded by a loop of the Nançon river acting as a natural moat. It has three different enclosures that were used for defensive purposes, day-to-day use during peacetime, and for the safety of the population during siege times. Visit the impressive 13 towers, and watch an entertaining live show plunging you into the fortress’s construction during the medieval period. A free booklet at the entrance helps you find your way.

  • This castle is very cool! They provide a self paced audio guide in many languages that allows you to tour at your own speed. There are many narrow steps in places, and watch your head on the low door frames.
  • This is the most beautiful town in the area. Beautiful chateau you can visit , lovely walks , sites and places to eat .
