Overview
More
The apparent austerity of this shale and limestone fortress, which the young king Louis IX had built on the edge of his kingdom in the 13th century, contrasts with the tranquil grounds inside the castle walls and the pleasant residence of the Dukes of Anjou, composed of buildings constructed at the end of the Gothic era. To transform and embellish the castle into a more welcoming home for the Anjou court, terraces and gardens were laid out, galleries built and the gateway erected. The star attraction within the walls of the Château d’Angers is the Tapestry of the Apocalypse or woven in 1375. With its 104 metres in length, it is the largest medieval tapestry anywhere in the world. Open: > 2nd May to 4th September: from 9.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. > 5th September to 30th April: from 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. Last admission 45 minutes before closing time. Closed: > 1st January, 1st May, 1st November, 11th November and 25th December.

This castle consists of multiple different "eco-systems" in one. The outside walls and drawbridge are pure medieval fortress but at the bottom of the dry moat are beautifully sculpted gardens. Once inside the walls, there are more gardens, including various vegetable gardens. The views of...More

I had the chance to visit the castle at sunset and have dinner. The guide was extremely professional and sounded confident. The view from the castle is unique! Lots of history in one place!

The Castle of Angers is cool, but within the walls is the Tapestry of the Apocolypse which is an incredible medieval wonder--much better than expected. Do a little research first to truly appreciate it!

Viewing the tapestries is not to be missed, but do get the excellent audio guide. We primarily visited the castle to see the Apocalypse Tapestry, which is stunning and rather larger that I had imagined. It is also in extremely good condition. Guided tours are...More
