Dinan castle - Tower Palace of the Dukes of Brittany



    An emblematic monument of the city, the Château de Dinan stands out as an exceptional testimony to the princely residences of the late medieval period.

    Built in the 1380s, at the request of Duke Jean IV to assert his power over a city that was hostile to him, the Château de Dinan rivals the royal château of Vincennes, residence of the King of France Charles V.
    Kitchen, banquet hall, ceremonial room, chapel, retreat room, all these devices necessary for life at court, make the Château de Dinan a real tower-palace.

    The scenographic route combines furniture of medieval inspiration and experimental archeology around two themes: the art of war and daily life in a princely residence.

    Many activities for young and old are organized to discover the castle. Activities to be found in the program available for download.
