Chateau de la Roche-Jagu, Brittany

(4.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Chateau of Roche-Jagu is located on a promontory which dominates the river Trieux. It is surrounded by a large park with many plants including camellias, and works of art. Very nice visit and walk

  • Before the entrance to the Castle, nice surprise with a golf course in the middle of aisles of camellias all more beautiful than the other. The castle is very beautiful and very well maintained gardens. Beautiful discovery

  • Amazing gardens with intriguing artworks. Superb castle. Could spend days here, overlooking the most secluded part of the river nearby, opposite conservation woodland.
  • Loved the gardens and the dominant position overlooking the river in the valley below. Arrived too late to see inside :(
  • A great place to visit, gardens great, loads of long walks, my dogs love it. Plenty of things going on during the summer, music, art exhibitions, flower shows. Lots of nice places near by, Pontrieux is a little cobbled city, with lots of touristy shops and nice places to eat. A real must.
  • The castle is ggggg there before you! Whoa, there in imposge! And then we are ballad on the rungs between Palm Grove and y6 is meticulous, commands respect and raises ideas garden...
