Château of Langeais and its park

Château of Langeais and its park à LANGEAIS © 11

The castle of Langeais, both a fortress and a prince residence, contains many treasures: carved furniture, rich curtains and pieces of art recall the life of the great lords. The reconstitution of the secret marriage of Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany which marks the attachment of the duchy to the crown of France and the vestiges of the oldest stone donjon located in the heart of the park bring you back to the time of the Middle Ages. Animations for young and old are offered throughout the year. This summer: Birds of prey show.

Description

Description of heritage

  • Descriptif du centre d'interprétation
    Built in the 15th century, it attests to the Renaissance style whilst conserving its original feudal character: drawbridge (finest example in France), remains of the square keep in stone (10th century), many medieval military architectural items. Bequeathed to the Institut de France in 1094 by Jacques Siegfried, listed as a historic monument in 1922, Château de Langeais offers a particular attraction with its medieval fortress appearance overlooking the Loire. Also has its decor, furniture, objets d'art and a remarkable collection of tapestries. It has conserved its exceptional setting as a place where the aristocracy lived in flamboyant times.

  • Descriptif du site et monument historique
    With its working drawbridge, wall-walk and machicolations, the castle built on Louis XI's orders presents a defensive presence at first glance. Anne of Brittany and Charles VIII were married in this elegant residence with features from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance as well as an exceptional collection of 15th and 16th century furniture and tapestries. The Foulques Nerra keep overlooks the lovely garden planted with trees, perched above the Loire. Family visit: Go to the castle's royal apartments. Look carefully at the pictures and try and spot the five hidden differences. Easy? Maybe not as easy as all that! But all the answers are somewhere in or around the small library.
