    The construction of this castle, later became a Ducal Castle began in 1229 by Jean I de Leroux near an old Benedictine Priory. During the dynasty of the Dukes of Monfort, the Château de Suscinio was the subject of major architectural changes and expansions. Following the French Revolution was sacked both the stones of the walls, which you have already worked for both the wooden planks of the roofs falling into ruin. Classified as a historic monument in 1840 French 80 years the Manor House has undergone extensive restoration work including the renovation of roofs in 2001. Today the structure, access to which costs euro 7.50, is almost completely intact and quite fascinating to see and explore while its interiors are empty apart from a few exhibits. One of the best preserved castles of Britain, surrounded by forest and a small lake.

    A castle completely restored from the 1980s. It was only a ruin before. Hats off. A very beautiful places that makes good account of the history and at the same time of the extraordinary work of restoration master craftsmen. A nice discovery, and besides, there are fun activities for children.

    This castle is part of the must-sees of the region. Even if we have welcomed his rescue, a good part of the building is actually a reconstruction. The absence of furniture or other items related to the time or region makes the visit a bit too "mineral".

    Very interesting medieval castle with nice panorama over the ocean. Beautifully restored with one side restored to the old glory while the other side of the castle is restored with metal walkways which give an interesting view of the architectural structure of the building.

    This is great. Reasonably priced entry, prince/princess dress up along the route through the castle rooms to break up the history for the kids. Fantastic presentation of exhibits. Everything written in English and French for visitors (and Breton for curiosity value). Spent a few hours here on a rainy day and very memorable for the kids. Coffee available at end but no coffee shop/nowhere to drink it if raining (if sunny can eat/drink in the castle courtyard). Very special place and you can cycle there on the cycle path.
