The Château de Ranrouët : a heritage site to discoverIn the shade of ancient oak trees is revealed the imposing silhouette of the ruins of the castle of Ranrouët.Located in an unique and unusual setting this sentinel of the marshlands is set apart from its contemporaries which are constructed on higher ground. Its construction began in the 13th century and it was continuously altered until the 17th century. The successive owners the Asseracs, the Rocheforts, the Rieux were able to modify the castle according to the needs of their time.Both a fortress and a residence the castle of Ranrouët is an undeniable witness to the history of Brittany.
