    Angers and its historical districts give a glimpse of the bustling activity that has existed since the Middle Ages. Proudly rising from a rocky spur, the impressive castle stands guard over opulent timber houses, religious edifices and Gothic grandeur.

    In the surrounding countryside, in the heart of the vineyards of the Aubance, or along the banks of the Loire, châteaux, manor houses, abbeys and churches pay homage to the history of this great region.
