Châteaugiron is a charming character town near Rennes, dominated by the high towers of its medieval castle. This former centre of the cloth trade has numerous well-preserved, colourful, elaborately carved half-timbered houses. The castle was founded in the 11th century and continued to evolve until the 19th century. The local Office de Tourisme organises guided tours of the castle and historic centre of Châteaugiron. There are also information boards throughout the old town to allow visitors to discover the streets, medieval houses and religious buildings. Guided tours of the castle and/or historic centre all year round for groups (booking required) and every day during July and August at 14.00 and 16.00.
