Castle of Fougeres

The castle of Fougères (in French: château de Fougères; in Breton: Kastell Felger) is one of the most famous castles in Brittany and one of the most imposing in Europe ; it is a medieval fortress built in the 12th century and extended several times until the 15th century, located on a rocky islet on the Nançon river in the town of Fougères , in an area that once represented the border between the Kingdom of France and the Duchy of Brittany .

The construction, a real fortified citadel that replaced a pre-existing wooden castle destroyed by the English in 1166 , was designed to accommodate the town’s population during enemy attacks . The castle was of enormous military importance until the 15th century, when the Duchy of Brittany lost its independence . It has been classified as a historical monument since 1892 and is owned by the municipality of Fougères .
