It became an independent kingdom and then a duchy before being united with the Kingdom of France in 1532 as a province governed as if it were a separate nation under the crown.

Chateau de Fougeres

Reviewed By TaraK261 - Dublin, Ireland

We stopped in Fougeres as a mid point between Cherbourg and Carnac and it was an ideal spot. We parked in the town centre and walked from the town gardens, which are beautiful, to the castle. The walk was gorgeous and was like walking into a fairytale. The castle itself was fantastic with a huge water wheel and complete castle ramparts. We walked along the ramparts and the kids loved this. The views from the castle ramparts were amazing and the kids loved being able to explore the castle grounds with all its nooks and crannys. There was a series of keyboxes with questions for the children to answer around the castle. There were AV displays and lots to see. A family ticket for 5 of us was €22, which is amazing value for money.

Chateau du Taureau

It was great to walk around an experience the atmosphere of the Chateau, and an excellent guidebook is provided (in French and English)) that explains the history and features of the building. The boat trip to get to the Chateau only adds to the experience. Great views also of the Baie de Morlaix from the tower.

Fort La Latte

The Castle of Roche Goyon, also called Fort La Latte, is a castle located on the tip of the Latte, near Cap Frehel in the department of Cotes-d'Armor in the municipality of Plevenon in the bay of Saint-Malo. Remarkable for its location on a rocky cape, facing the sea, it served as a backdrop for several films. The castle of Roche-Goyon was built in the fourteenth century by the lord of Matignon, Stephen III Gouon. The construction of the castle began in the 1340s, its keep dates from 1365-1370. In 1379, after the exile of the Duke of Brittany John IV, the castle was besieged by Bertrand Du Guesclin. It was not until the eighteenth century, under Louis XIV, that the castle regains its strategic interest. It will serve until the end of the First Empire where the evolution of military techniques led to its inadaptability. From 1892, it was sold to various private owners before being bought by an enthusiast Frederic Jouon Des Longrais in 1931 who undertook heavy restoration work.

Already while approaching the Fort via Hiking path you get fabulous views on the castle. The entrance fee is 6,50 for adults - not cheap, yet everything is in good order and you stroll around and get a good impression of medivial life (although of course a bit limited because of COVID). A highlight is the view from the tower.
