Château de Fougères-sur-Bièvre, Fougeres-sur-Bievre

#3 of 16 in Sightseeing in Loir-et-Cher
Architectural Building Historic Site
Originally an 11th century structure, Château de Fougères-sur-Bièvre was entirely rebuilt at the end of the 15th century with only the large courtyard being preserved. Many original military facilities remained, such as ditches, cannon holes, and the wall walk, but Renaissance builders added refinements, such as a gallery, mullioned windows, and steep-sloped roofs. Builders later installed a spinning mill in the chapel during the 19th century. You can attend a guided tour in English, or explore the castle unaccompanied to view its keep and the fortified postern tower. Château de Fougères-sur-Bièvre is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Fougeres-sur-Bievre Edition.

  • Surprisingly nice castle where you can walk around freely and has very few tourists.
  • Amazing history and a bonus was the Pamphlet written in English.
  • no need to pay entrance fee to go in there, save the money for the real castles.
  • Small castle, not the most impressive among the Loire castles. But the place is less tourisic, more quiet.
  • Super :-)
