ANGERS, CAPITAL OF THE DUKES OF ANJOU

The city is home to one of the 22 Loire castles and major sites of the Loire Valley listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The castle of Angers is located in the heart of the city, you can't miss it! Proudly installed since the 13th century, medieval times, on the rocky promontory overlooking the Maine, its imposing enclosure and its 17 defensive towers make it the emblem of the city. Moreover, it shelters a treasure: The Tenture of the Apocalypse ordered by Louis I of Anjou around 1375, today plunged into darkness for its conservation. With its 103 metres long, 4.5 metres high on average and its 71 scenes, it is the largest collection of medieval tapestries in the world!
