Description

With fast-track access you can get right into this medieval castle and see the world's biggest and oldest collection of medieval tapestries. The 14th-century Apocalypse Tapestry, a woven illustration of 14th-century life in France, is one of the world's best. Get amazing city views from over the castle walls too!

Featuring 17 towers, the Château d'Angers was founded in the 9th century by the Counts of Anjou and expanded in the 13th century. It's oozing romance as much as history!

Revisit the refined court life of times gone by in France. Stroll through the beautiful gardens, which extend to the castle moats, walk along the wall for fabulous city views, and if you happen upon a turret with no one in it, why not let down your hair, Rapunzel?

Perhaps the most popular reason for visiting is for a glimpse at the Apocalypse Tapestry. Spanning 103m in length and housed in its own impressive room, it's the largest woven work in medieval history.

Plague, famine and the Hundred Years War are depicted on this fascinating piece of medieval work that you simply have to see to believe.

Great chateau. Easy entrance with pre-paid tickets, although not too many people around at 11.00 on a Monday morning.
