Take a tour of Fougeres Castle in France — part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Fougeres Castle lies in the north-west French commune of the same name, and presents itself as if something from a fairy-tale or medieval legend.
It is large, sturdy and imposing, with towers, turrets, crenelations, and a moat.
The fortress as it stands today was reconstructed in the 15th century from an early 11th century castle.
Fougeres Castle is larger than most medieval fortresses and boasts impressive twin artillery towers.
However, even this castle’s impressive defenses were conquered and after serving as the seat of the local governor, it became a historic monument.
The castle is currently open to visitors and runs regular guided tours of the grounds.
