This site is worth the half day required to add it to the usual D-Day and Mont-St-Michel driving itinerary. Much money has been invested in making this an attractive attraction. The castle is very well presented, with lots of "context" allowing the visitor to learn...More

Well presented and partially restored, mostly accessible with good views to the surrounding countryside. English translation would have helped better understanding

Not sure as to what to expect on arrival - but this chateau/ castle was truly amazing. Walk the walls, visit the turrets, inspect the rooms. Just enjoy this beautiful building in an equally lovely town and learn something of its history

Fougeres was a really cool castle. It's big, and we spent a lot of time exploring. We went on our way to Mont Saint Michel. I'm glad we did. I highly recommend making this a pit stop.

Fougères Castle is the biggest Medieval Castle in Europe, so it's surprising that nobody's ever heard of it. It's a perfect castle for families: pointy turrets that are reminiscent of fairytales, obviously recognisable rooms and areas, architecture that is easy to identify as you look...More
