Fougères Castle and Town

On the way back to Calais, we visited the splendid Château de Fougères, a medieval castle built on a granite ledge, which was part of the Duchy of Brittany's ultimately unsuccessful defence against French aggression. It is possible to climb all the towers and to walk on the high walls - like many monuments in France, health and safety are not high on the list.
