Visit Angers

Angers is sometimes called ‘black’ because of the slate with which its buildings are built. It is a city that still has its medieval structure with narrow, winding streets and is a city with many attractions.

The city of Angers has ancient origins, and it is possible that it existed in Roman times – the place referred to by Caesar as the place called ‘Andes’ or ‘Andibus’, which was used as a winter camp for his legions.

The city was founded on two hills between the Maine River, which divides it into two parts connected by several bridges. Angers is an ancient and powerful city with walls accessible through many gates built over the centuries. The center of the walled city (Citadel) is dominated by the castle, which according to legend was built in 718 AD. of Ranfray, Count of Anjou. The established history of the castle and the city dates back to the 13th century.

Of course, the castle dominates the center of Angers town and is well worth a visit. It is also quite striking with its many columns with striped patterns and also for the attractive parterre gardens laid out around its base. However, Angers is a vibrant and interesting city with more to see than just the castle.

Next to the castle stands the Cathedral of Saint-Maurice, consecrated in 1030 by Bishop Hubert, and then enlarged through the centuries. In Gothic style, it is a Latin cross and a single nave with a sail vault and a series of beautiful stained glass windows and many statues.

On one side, a staircase leading up to the narrow double-spire rear of the cathedral is rather a striking view. At the other end is Place Sante-Croix, located in the vibrant heart of the city. Here you can see the medieval ‘Adam’s House’ (‘Maison d’Adam’) decorated with a variety of sculptures including the tree of life and perhaps the most famous ‘Le Tricouillard’ having his pants down and everything hanging out!

Not far from here is the beautiful Grand Theater and Collegiale Saint Martin. The Collegiale Saint Martin is one of the best-preserved medieval Renaissance buildings in France, and you can enter its lovely interior for a small fee and admire both its architecture and the year-round art exhibitions. Keep an eye on both the crypt with its sarcophagi and in another basement area the form that was used to create the church bells.

Museet ligger i et palæ fra det 15. århundrede og har også en have – Jardin du Musée des Beaux Arts et le cloitre Toussaint.
