department in Bretagne in northwestern France. With over a thousand
years of history, the town boasts the largest medieval castle
in Europe, a medieval stronghold built on a granite ledge. A
large section of the town walls survive stretching from the château
in the lower town, up the hill to surround the upper town. The
citizens in the lower town who were outside the fortifications,
had to retreat into the fortress in times of trouble. Fougères
also has one of only three belfries in Brittany, where a weekend
market now takes place. The Forêt de Fougères, just
to the north of the town, offers walking, cycling and a very
pleasant lake with swimming beach and play area.
