Life and travel in France, 3 years & counting

Where should I go next?…

Angers, not angry!

After visiting the château, we continued to visit the old town of Angers.Angers.location

In almost every single French city, we can find a beautiful cathedral. And in Angers, it is the Cathédrale Saint-Maurice d’Angers.

The best way to view this cathedral is to look up the steps from the little fountain square. It is a short walk from the château along the river and thus makes a good start for the city tour.

Well, that’s very considerate of them to show me how it should have looked like

A street away from the cathedral, you will find Maison d’Adam. This half-timbered building is beautifully decorated with wooden sculptures. Nowadays it serves as the home of artists in Angers.

We passed by the Palace of Tau on our way back (it is actually situated next to the cathedral). It was closed on the day we visited Angers, so I can’t tell you what’s inside but it is supposed to be the old bishop’s palace…

We didn’t spend long in the city but Angers is a lovely city. Definitely worth a visit.

Bon voyage à tous 🙂
