It is the most famous landmark of Nantes. It is a castle situated on the riverbank of the Loire. It was once used for the center of Brittany’s historical province. A lot of exhibitions are housed in the castle on and off throughout the year. It has no fee for admission. We had a brunch picnic around the castle.
