Castle Tiffauges is located 62 kms from the campsite. The castle is also named the Bluebeard castle in reference to Gilles de Rais, the most famous resident of the castle who was nicknamed Bluebeard.
The castle was built by Geoffroy de Thouars during the 12th century. The castle suffered a first destruction during the time of the Hundred Years War. The castle will undergo modifications following the partial destruction that it will undergo throughout the medieval history.
Since 2002, the castle hosts various shows and has a conservatory consisting of war machines used during the medieval period.
Currently, two films are available during the visit including one in 3D named “Tiffauges, the castle of Gilles de Rais”.
