About Chateau D' Angers, Angers

Situated in the Loire valley overlooking the river Maine, the castle was once the court of Rene (the count) of Anjou. Founded by the counts of Anjou way back in the 9th Century, the current structure is as a result of expansion in the 13th century, wherein in the castle was fortified because of its important defensive location. It is probably because of its role as a defensive fortress that Dauphin sought refuge here when he fled from Paris in the 15th century with the aid of Joan of Arc.

Later the castle was converted into a Military Academy to train young officers in strategies of war and till date preserved to its former glory.

Today the castle houses:

  • The famed Apocalypse tapestry, biggest tapestry in the world.
  • Largest collection of a variety of medieval tapestries.
  • Beautifully maintained palace gardens including the roof-top gardens.
  • Vineyards.
  • The adjoining chapel, also known as the Sainte Chapelle. Named after the fact that the chapel is said to house a splinter from the actual cross of Christ.
