Relive the event that marked the château’s history : the royal wedding of Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany, portrayed by strikingly realistic wax figures.
Walk along the parapet walk with its machicolations, then visit the medieval-style gardens and the park. There you will discover the keep’s construction site as the builders of the year 1000 would have known it, the tree house and the belvedere on the Loire (see the château’s park).
