Château de Clisson
At the frontier of the former Duchy of Brittany
The romantic ruins of the Clisson castle are standing in the heart of the town.
Built by the powerful Clisson family in the twelfth century, the castle played a strategic role in protecting the frontiers of the Duchy of Brittany in the fifteenth century. It was burned down during the Vendéen Wars. Today, the site offers numerous examples of defensive architecture: arrow slits, cannon ports, traps, etc.
