Château de Goulaine

Museums and sites

Gratuit avec le Nantes Pass


Goulaine is a fort dating from the Middle Ages and following the affiliation of Brittany and France, was reconstructed with ‘tuffeau’ rock in “Renaissance” style. While building work was finished in the 17th century, the principal floor dates back to the 15th century and the Renaissance and the oldest parts date back to the Middle Ages. Built from chalk stone (Tufa stone), “Goulaine” lives on as an example of the opulence that once reigned in this “Valley of the Kings”. Guided tour of the Stately Home.
