Chateau de la Roche-Jagu, Brittany

4.5
#26 of 179 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 .

  • Superb Castle to visit, medieval, very playful on the inside, well laid out, there was a theme about vampires among others it was very nice. The grounds are beautiful too, to do. Very nice visit.

  • If you are looking for antique furniture and objets d'art the Castle won't do for you, the interiors are almost totally lacking and the place hosts contemporary art exhibitions or simply a scientific nature. In my case, among other things, not even particularly interesting. Beyond that, the Park is a gem. It has several areas all very different from each other, you pass by the garden of palms to the Lakes with water lilies. Beautiful. In addition, for children, and not only that, there are numerous medieval games that you can play (for free).

  • 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.
  • Love the castle and place... great atmosphere and lovely garden
