The city is hosting one of the 22 Loire Valley Chateaux designated as part of the UNESCO world heritage site.

In the very heart of the coty,  you can’t miss the remarkable citadel. 

Punctuated by 17 towers, the massive medieval fortifications in schist and limestone (built from 1230 onwards) stretch for almost 500 metres.

Besides, the castle houses a treasure : the Tapestry of the Apocalypse which, owing to how it was made, its size and age, is a major piece of medieval art.
