Brittany Castles

Brittany was an independent Duchy throughout the Middle Ages until 1547 and as such needed to protect itself from French invasions. Consequently, it come as no surprise that the region be endowned with some of the mightiest medieval fortresses in France. Like their Cornish and Welsh cousins, the Bretons like to built their houses and cities in stone, and their castles have more massive stone walls than almost anywhere else in the world. This page provides a list of all the castles that can be visited, with a link to their official websites whenever available.
