An archaeological treasure … but so much more besides
Owned by the family since 1823 and now classified as a historical monument, the medieval fortress of Lassay-les-Châteaux appears today as it was rebuilt after the Hundred Years War.
For archaeologists and history buffs, it is a treasure trove of references to the past. But it is also an extremely lively, radiant place. It’s an inhabited, bustling house, not a museum. Our visitors feel that. We bring the past to life with re-enactments, and we make sure it’s right up to date with extreme sports events and concerts. It is not only a witness to the past, it’s part of the modern life of the region.”
