Most amazing monument in Nantes is probably the castle, in the city center.

Well, I like the idea that we have a CASTLE in the city center, and people live near from it as if it was pretty common (I personnaly do). Funny experience to see people taking the tramway to go to the railway station and going near the castle without even looking at it. Well, I even forgot to mention it in the travel pages for many months and just remembered we had one... ;) Ah, when beauties are near you all the time, you sometimes dont pay attention anymore.

So, what about the castle? Main historic tip: it used to be THE castle of Briton kings, among other the Queen Anne de Bretagne. Havent been inside for a long time but remember it is nice and a must do if interested in history.
