The multiple drum towers that make up the imposing façade of this massive chateau were once a part of an impressive fortress inhabited by the Romans in the 9th century. After some additional construction, Château d’Angers was used as an armory in the First and Second World Wars. Today it’s been converted into an epic museum that houses the largest—and oldest—collection of medieval tapestries in the world.
Visitors can venture past the castle’s three-meter-thick walls and explore the 17 towers that stretch high into the sky surrounding the city of Angers. Covering an area of more than 220,000 square feet, the castle grounds offer tourists plenty to discover outdoors before venturing inside to check out the museum’s galleries.
Travelers looking to learn more about the castle’s history and the significance of the museum’s tapestries can take an hour-long guided tour of the castle. The high walls offer incredible views of the city and English audio guides are available for a small fee.
