Excursion Details:
  • The Château de Fougères is a castle in the commune of Fougères in the Ille-et-Vilaine département of France. The castle was built on a naturally protected site, a rock emerging from a swamp surrounded by a loop of the Nançon river acting as a natural moat.
  • It had three different enclosures: the first for defensive purposes; the second for day to day usages in peacetime and for safety of the surrounding populations in times of siege; and the last for the protection of the keep. In all it has an impressive 13 towers.
  • The Castle of Fougeres has been staged to tell a story and reveal both its own history and that of the Marches of Brittany. Enter the castle enclosure and let yourself be caught up in its history. An entertaining new historical spectacle plunges you into the medieval period and reveals the secrets of the fortress which was gradually built up over time and which played a key role in the defence of the duchy of Brittany.
  • Special theme activities, lectures, temporary exhibitions.
