History of the monument

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 château 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 château. 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 château suggests just how refined court life was.


To ensure the safety of our visitors, the monument is strictly applying the security measures decided by the french authorities.
The monument is fully opened.
