  • We were delighted with our visit. The staff was very nice and professional. the castle is beautiful, and the price is very affordable. If you go through glass, it must take a break. The castle is also the City Hall.

  • When one arrives in Vitre and sees its imposing Castle in upper feels for a moment in the middle ages. Villa is beautiful and very well maintained, access to the Castle (from the 11th century) is simple and the façade welcomes us in an impressive way, the truth is that I like more on the outside inside, having little to see, but a little can spend to see it that the input to is not very expensive (€ 1.50-3 do not remember well). The City Hall is located inside the Castle.

  • The day I visited this castle and its Hamlet the sky was overcast and this perhaps made it a bit darker medieval atmosphere that reigns in this place. Part of the Castle houses the hotel de ville (Town Hall) and therefore is not open to the public. The part can be visited instead houses a Museum (entry fee 6 euros per person) where you can admire historical furniture and objects. More spectacular abroad and inside. Overall are obvious alterations and reconstructions. At the time of my visit a part of the castle was surrounded by barricades and scaffolds, the subject of ongoing work.

  • It is very beautiful. I am amazed how well maintained the structures & pieces are.
  • Impressive medieval fort, easy to see why it was an example of military excellence in the feudal period!
  • Impressive chateau from the outside but ticket office closed for half an hour when we arrived as the staff were giving a tour so disappointed kids!
  • Fantastic town with plenty of old buildings and a proper complete castle
  • beautiful castle and village very friendly
