Discover the Château d’Angers, a vast and well-preserved medieval fortress built in the 13th century by the young Saint-Louis, son of Louis VIII. Punctuated by 17 towers, the massive medieval fortifications in schist and limestone stretch for almost 500 meters. You'll discover archaeological remains, a royal fortress, and ducal buildings from the late Middle Ages. Inside, you will also admire the Apocalypse Tapestry, a unique masterpiece that illustrates the historical, social, and political context of the 14th century in France.

The skip-the-line entrance grants you access to the Apocalypse Tapestry, the ramparts, the chapel, the gardens, and the ground floor of the Royal House. The floors of the Royal House are accessible during temporary exhibitions.
