A remarkable citadel. Punctuated by 17 towers, the massive medieval fortifications in schist and limestone (built from 1230 onwards) stretch for almost 500 metres.
An exceptional tapestry. The chÃ¢teau houses the Tapestry of the Apocalypse which, owing to how it was made, its size and age, is a major piece of medieval art.
A court chÃ¢teau. In the 14th and 15th centuries the Dukes of Anjou held court in Angers. They were enlightened princes and patrons of the arts and architecture, and their chÃ¢teau suggests just how refined court life was.
