Chateau de la Roche-Jagu, Brittany

4.6
#24 of 93 in Parks in Brittany
Historic Site Nature / Park
As the only survivor of ten fortresses along this valley in medieval times, Chateau de la Roche-Jagu is a Gothic fortress built in the 15th century and restored in 1968. The staggering number of chimneys (19) form a row along the crest of the building that looks like a defense structure, while the façade on the other side is more charming with many windows and an eccentric tower perched up high. The interior houses many of the county’s hidden maritime treasures on view for you. Plan your Chateau de la Roche-Jagu visit and explore what else you can see and do in Pontrieux using our Pontrieux vacation builder.

  • If you expect to see historical items, you will be very disappointed. There is nothing! The castle had been renovated in 1964 and contains a nature exhibition but no historical things like furniture, weapons, armour etc.
  • Beautiful castle and grounds overlooking the Trieux river. You can also walk down and hike along the water.
  • Beautiful grounds and gardens. Lovely view across the river too.
  • Nice gardens, nice view.
  • Amazing gardens with intriguing artworks. Superb castle. Could spend days here, overlooking the most secluded part of the river nearby, opposite conservation woodland.
