Angers is a city in the North-West of France, located in the beautiful Loire Valley. Angers is home to Angers Castle (Château d'Angers) and the magnificent Apocalypse Tapestry (Tapisserie de l'Apocalypse).
I visited the Château d'Angers in March 2019 with my boyfriend. If you are an EU citizen under 25 you can visit the castle and tapestry for free. A full price ticket is 9€ to see the castle and the amazing tapestry. My boyfriend and I had an hour and a half to explore the chateau. The castle was built in 1230 as fortress because of its location above the river Maine, but the location was occupied as early as 4000 B.C. Angers Castle was in the Anjou family; it was occupied by the Dukes of Anjou in the 14th and 15th centuries. More about the fascinating history of the castle can be found on their official website.
