Fougères Medieval City Self-Guided Tour - Multilingual audio guide
Presented by
Patrimoine de Bretagne

Discover the medieval city of Fougères, home to the largest fortress in Europe. Explore its rich built heritage and its well-preserved medieval district, with its streets and public squares lined with half-timbered houses, its large churches and its beautiful gardens, all surrounding the banks of the Nançon River. An imposing belfry - the oldest in Brittany - is part of this unforgettable visit.

The exceptional heritage of Fougères has inspired great authors, including Honoré de Balzac, Victor Hugo and François René de Chateaubriand.


The interactive map offered in BaladoDiscovery presents photos and audio content read by two dynamic professional voices. Listen to see…


A concrete experience is offered to you: Take a tour at your own pace, including a suggested itinerary that will take you off the beaten track. The map locates you in real time in relation to the essential points of the visit. It is also possible to visit the interior of the castle by going directly to the visitors' entrance, at 83 Place Pierre Symon.


For a better experience, we suggest you download the BaladoDiscovery application to your cell phone (iOS / Android) and use its Preload option. You will then be guided and informed in the field without having to be connected to the Internet network while you travel. 

Wearing headphones is also recommended during this walking tour.

Welcome to Fougères!
