Zámok Fougères-sur-Bièvre, Fougeres-sur-Bievre

4.3
#3 of 17 in Historic Sites in Loir-et-Cher
Originally an 11th century structure, Zámok 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.

  • Unfortunately empty inside, there is a free tour of virtually all of the Castle, but very little furniture and that's a shame

  • Castle very well preserved, magnificent architecture and beautiful framing, this castle is worth the look.

  • If you're in the area, worth it. It is not big and a little bare. The latrines were much amused our teenager

  • 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 :-)
