This is one of the most gorgeous castles. The white stone and the beautiful details uplift me every time. I enjoy the museum, too.

I spent an hour walking around on a brief visit to Nantes. It is beautifully kept and provides good insight into the area's history. It is impossible to miss this attraction due to its central location. Recommended
