Your visit

Situated on a rocky promontory, the castle is reflected in the water mirror of the Thouet like an invitation to contemplation and poetic reverie.

A citadel on the banks of the Thouet
Before entering, you are surprised by the barbican and the imposing 600 meter long wall, flanked by towers, which develops into an impassable obstacle.

Even the 8th Count of Anjou, Geoffrey Plantagenet, never conquered the place despite his repeated attempts.

Today the impregnable fortress opens its doors and lowers the drawbridge to welcome you.
