even a museum of puppets inside, and wonderful gardens, need to come its great, just next to the canal Nantes Brest.
the Chateau de Josselin, still in private hands of the family of Rohan-Chabot, who occupied the first floor, been the street level floor open to the public for 8€ for adults.
There are wonderful gardens,and a nice puppet museum or Musée des Poupées on rue des Trente entrance. For me it is the castle, a wonderfully kept and maintained property which shows why the owners still live there. There were actually 9 towers most destroyed because the original Rohan were protestants calvinists and when they lost to king Louis XIII, Cardinal Richelieu in return destroyed them. The remaining tower or tour isolée or isolated tower was once used as a prison and still remain detach from the castle. You visit the castle by going right in from of the chapel at Place de la Congrégation, and then go thru a door that makes pass over the levy bridge of old into the castle property proper.
