Angers The Essential
Highly recommended
Stronghold of the Plantagenêt dynasty and later a flourishing Renaissance city, Angers retains some of the colossal walls of its medieval fortress dating from the time of King René of Anjou, and the extraordinary Apocalypse Tapestry... plus an amazing array of parks and public gardens! Végépolys, a plant research centre of international renown, was opened here in 2005.
