Chateau de la Roche-Jagu, Brittany

4.5
#29 of 180 in Parks in Brittany
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. To visit Chateau de la Roche-Jagu on your trip to Pontrieux, use our Pontrieux trip tool .

  • The Castle now houses an exhibition hall, so it distorts originated (although its spaces take advantage of otherwise). There's even a reading room. There are posters in Spanish throughout the Castle. There are bathrooms next to the box office, free, not inside the Castle. Free parking nearby land. Hours (August): from 10 to 13 and from 14 to 19. Castle price: €3 (gardens are free and are open all year round).

  • Definitely worth a visit. Spectacular views over the valley. The gardens are amazing with great planting and great ideas. Every year there is something new to see. Staff are very knowledgeable and really helpful. Good facilities for wheelchair users, although chateau is not accessible, the gardens and grounds are and are definitely worth visiting.
  • The gardens here are absolutely incredible. The castle itself was interesting, but I would go here for the gardens alone. Unlike anything I have ever experienced in my life.
  • Well maintained. Interesting exhibits. Clean grounds with some good views
  • One of the nicest castle in Brittany. Wonderful park where you can walk for hours.
  • 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.
