Fort la Latte or Roche Goyon castle
It is not for nothing that it is the most visited castle in Brittany! An impregnable site, a breathtaking panorama, a remarkable building... there is no shortage of superlatives to talk about Fort La Latte.
Fort La Latte, first called Château de la Roche Goyon after its builder Etienne Goyon, Lord of Matignon, was built in the 1690th century. By authorization of his suzerain, the lord of Matignon was able to fortify it and received the means to ensure the fortifications. Vauban came to put his grain of salt there and transformed it into a coastal defense fort between 1715 and XNUMX.
Classified as Historic Monuments
One of the most famous fortified castles in Brittany, Fort La Latte has been listed as a Historic Monument since 1925. And since 1931, it has been restored and maintained by the Joüon des Longrais family who have managed to preserve all of its attributes: drawbridge, walls, dungeon, dungeons, war machines and medieval garden for the happiness of visitors.
A breathtaking panorama
Walk to the entrance of the fort and as you progress, you will witness a grandiose spectacle: a rocky cape on which the feudal castle is placed.
Once inside, observe all the openings and viewpoints of the building and admire the view! Brave the dungeon steps (no sensitive soul) and become Tony Curtis or Sophie Marceau for a moment. From above, "the breathtaking view" will take on its full meaning and you will feel a real sense of freedom.
The fortress was used as a setting for several films, such as "Les Vikings" in 1957, with Tony Curtis and Kirk Douglas, and for the final scene of the film "Chouans" with Lambert Wilson and Sophie Marceau.
