Typical of medieval architecture in Brittany, this 13th-century building belonged to the Tournemine family from the 13th to the 17th century.
Nearly in ruins when it was bought by the State in 1930, the castle has since been restored and is open to visitors. After walking up a small path, you will pass through the drawbridge, and can admire the five towers and their defensive systems from the outside, along with the curtain walls that connect them. There is a 3D film to help you understand this fortress' history. There are terminals and touchscreen tablets so you can step back in time and see how the place would have looked in different eras. Temporary exhibitions, shows and night-time trails keep visitors entertained.
For fans of mysteries and the uncanny, the castle is said to be haunted. Yet another reason to pay it a visit!
