What to expect

Discover the Château d’Angers, located in the Pays de la Loire region, at the heart of the town of Angers. This vast and well-preserved medieval fortress was built in 13th century by the young Saint-Louis, son of Louis VIII, because of the strategic position next to the Maine River. Punctuated by 17 towers, the massive medieval fortifications in schist and limestone stretch for almost 500 metres.

This is a site of extraordinary richness and diversity, featuring archaeological remains, a royal fortress, ducal buildings from the late Middle Ages.

Inside you will also admire a wonderful treasure: the literally monumental Apocalypse tapestry. At 140m in length, it is the largest woven work of medieval art. This unique and exceptional masterpiece illustrates the historical, social and political context of the 14th century in France – the time of the Hundred Years War, plague and famine.

At the heart of the huge fortress, discover the residential buildings and beautifully tended gardens, located in the dried up moats. You will also be amazed by a charming Renaissance style garden, nestled behind the ramparts.

With your skip-the-line entrance, you will have access to the Apocalypse Tapestry, ramparts, chapel, gardens, ground floor of the Royal House with the model room and Porte des Champs. The floors of the Royal House are accessible during temporary exhibitions.

Don’t miss the walk along the ramparts of the Château d’Angers to get a panoramic and stunning view over Angers.
