Home of the Dukes of Brittany – XIII – X V centuries
In the Middle Ages the castle was  the favourite home of the Dukes of Brittany  and their court. South of the Rhuys Peninsula, close to the ocean, the castle  was protected  by surrounding marshes and sea  water feeding its moats.
At the time, a  forest provided  an ideal position  for hunting but has now  disappeared. Today the castle embodies a powerful XV century fortress with six  towers and two ramparts.
It is  a compact castle circled  by moats  with a drawbridge for access. It has been entirely restaured  and, after 30 years of work, the main building holds now  a permanent exhibition on painted china tiles and  on the castle history through  seven centuries.
