  Les Jardins du Chateau d'Angers
by TimDaoust
 
 

This medieval era chateau sits atop a much older (Gallo-Roman) structure of something like 17 enormous towers with a dry moat surrounding them. Tours are cheap and will take you into the medieval era castle where the Tapisserie de l'Apocolypse, a tapestry that depicts the book of Revelations from the Bible, is housed. There are also many other tapestries of the same era contained within. After the tour you should roam around the top of the towers and the chateau gardens. Also, in passing the chateau, one can see the magnificent gardens down in the dry moat surrounding the towers, one of the most beaufiul in the city. Also see the Promenade de Port Ligny and the rose garden at the foot of the walls on the side of the chateau facing the river . For a little more history on the Chateau go here

Address: Quai de Ligny and Bd. De Charles de Gaulle
Directions: Can't miss it, it's huge. The number 6 bus line stops right beside the Chateau.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
