Chateau de Tiffauges, Tiffauges
Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
Chateau de Tiffauges was thought to be one residence of Gilles de Rais: fighting companion of Joan of Ark, notorious serial killer, and the inspiration for the legend of Bluebeard. Due to this tainted history, the château was left to ruin for many years, but after the Counsel General of Vendée acquired the property, it once again opened to the public. The largest medieval castle in the region, it features an alchemy workshop and an array of war machines from that period on display. After learning the science of making gold, take a tour of the grounds and search for the ghosts that are said to haunt the castle looking for revenge.

In addition the price of inputs is very affordable so take a break!show original
