Chateau de Vitre

The main reason that people stop by Vitre is to visit the enormous chateau. It is typically French with pepper pot turrets and curtain walling. There has been a castle here for over 1,000 years but the present version dates from the 13th century. It has served a number of functions over the years including that of a prison barracks. It is also one of the first castles in France to be designated a building of historic interest back in 1872.

The town

The town is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Brittany and has an impressive array of old (and some) strange buildings. There is enough to keep the keen traveller occupied for a day here.
