  • Josselin Castle has the particularity of having 2 completely different facades of the other. (Compulsory) guided tour of the Castle allows you to understand its history, from the middle ages to today. The guide welcomes us into the courtyard of the castle in order to make us live the vicissitudes and the glories that this family home has known through the centuries. The view of the Renaissance façade is splendid (Riverside, medieval façade). Only parts of the DRC can be visited. The symbols of the family are found everywhere. Of the guide's comments are very interesting (but a bit fast). The castle is still inhabited by the family of Rohan on the 2nd floor.

  • An impressive looking chateau, but not sure the tour was worth it. You only get to see the groind floor and, although it's interesting stuff, it's fairly quick.
  • nice from the outside, probably also from the inside - but as it's a private Castle, visit is limited to guided tours at certain hours.
  • It's a cute castle in a cute small medieval town. The ticket is a little too expensive in my opinion, but the guided visit is great.
  • Great little château, guided tour is a must to get a feel for the history.
  • We didn't get into the castke but the front river and around of it are worthwhile.
