Charming buildings, fine cuisine, renowned vineyards, festivals and monuments, and inspired parks and gardens... A “Ville d’Art et d’Histoire”, Angers surprises visitors with its dynamic atmosphere, rich heritage and quality of life. Fall under the spell of the town’s historic centre and take a stroll through the old town to admire the magnificent view of the Maine river from the castle. This imposing fortress flanked by 17 impressive towers is home to the famous Apocalypse tapestry. Next, head to the La Doutre district, which has a lively student feel, where you’ll be enchanted by the area’s half-timbered buildings, private town houses, typical Angevin properties with light tufa façades and numerous splashes of greenery. Other fascinating sights include the Collégiale Saint-Martin, the oldest church in Angers, the Musée des Beaux-Arts, as well as the Jean Lurçat and Cointreau museums and the Le Quai theatre. And for an original exploration of the plant world, don’t miss the Terra Botanica, the largest vegetable garden in Europe, which is not far from Angers and which offers a unique experience for all the family. Lastly, why not take a bike ride along the 40km “La Loire à Vélo” route which runs through the town?
