This past July, my wife and I walked through Brittany, France for a month, and of all the wonders we discovered on that trip, nothing impressed me more than walking up to the battlements of the magnificent castle of Fougeres. It's like time travelling, and the views from its walls are the most incredible thing I've seen. A must if you travel to Brittany. Do not miss it.
Fougeres's city center is very nice. When I visited, the day was sunny so I sat on a terrace having a drink and writing postcards. The merchants were very friendly and so were the locals. It's a beautiful town, with a fountain in the square and the warmth of its people.
At the top of this medieval town there is the Town Hall, the Church of San Leonardo and the Jardin des Plantes. I left the car at the church's entrance, and crossed the commercial and lively Saturday market to get to the tourist office (next to the theater) and the castle, then back up to the garden. Going the other way is equally recommended because the climb through the park is accentuated, but worse if it's raining. The Church of San Leonardo dates back to the 12th century, but was rebuilt later. In summer, tourists can access the belfry from which the views are spectacular, if not, the outstanding park next door offers beautiful views of the castle.
