Enter by the huge drawbridge across the moat and explore the governor's lodge, the dungeons, the battlements and enjoy the unobstructed view over the city. The architecture shows the course of the site's development across the centuries, with the construction of the fortress and its towers by the young King Louis, the Royal Lodge, the chapel and the Châtelet (small scale castle) - all built by the Dukes of Anjou. The interior of the castle plays host to the attractive residence of the Dukes of Anjou, made up of Gothic buildings, gardens and can even boast a few vines.
