The Angers Castle is a remarkable citadel punctuated by 17 towers. The massive medieval fortifications in schist and limestone (built from 1230 onwards) stretch for almost 500 meters. It is also the home of an exceptional tapestry: the Tapestry of the Apocalypse which, owing to how it was made, its size and age, is a major piece of medieval art. In the 14th and 15th centuries the Dukes of Anjou held court in Angers. They were enlightened princes and patrons of the arts and architecture, and their château suggests just how refined court life was.
