Château du Plessis-Macé

Interesting
This 15C castle in white tufa and sombre schist is hidden among trees and its perimeter wall punctuated by towers. On one side are the outbuildings with stables and the guardroom; on the other is the chapel, a tower staircase and the lodgings. The hanging gallery is a lacework structure in tufa from where ladies once watched jousting and entertainments. Don't miss the Flamboyant-style St Michel chapel with its 15C Gothic panelling.
