History of the Château des Ducs d'Anjou


The Château d'Angers, also known as the Château des Ducs d'Anjou in the past, is an imposing 13th-century fortress. Built by Louis IX, it was subsequently renovated by other French kings. Protected by 17 towers and a deep moat, the castle played a key role in the medieval history of France.
