Where should I go next?…
Angers, one of the “large” cities around Nantes, is merely 40 minute away by TGV. It should make a perfect day trip and personally it is a must-visit for its château. I mean, with public transport, it is not always easy to visit the Loire château as most are located in the countryside.
Château d’Angers, instead of calling it a castle, it is rather a fortress. It has a long history, with its construction began in the 9th century and finished in the 13th century.
There are in total 17 towers along the castle wall and they once reached 40 meters in height. However, Tour du Moulin is the only tower that conserves the original elevation now as the rest were reduced in height for the use of cannon. Out of the 17 towers, 2 pairs of towers form 2 entrances.
The entry fee is 8.5€ and we took a little more than an hour to walk along the wall and around the castle ground.
Next entry I will continue with my visit of Angers.
Bon voyage à tous 🙂
