© Château de Kerouzéré
Lord of the Pays du Léon area, Kerouzéré Castle is a remarkable monument to medieval Brittany. Big on granite and emotions.Once there was a drawbridge, a moat, a wall-walk, and more turrets, but Kerouzéré Castle has seen many a battle and peasant revolt over the years. Built in the 15th century, from blocks of granite with a slate roof, this fortress has managed to keep a strong medieval feel and became a listed historic monument in 1883. Today, it is the only fortress from this period that you can still visit in the whole of the Finistère. Unpretentious yet majestic, the grounds are home to a variety of trees and flower-beds blooming with rhododendrons, hydrangeas and camellias. You might also come across horses, a fountain, a dovecote and a wash-house at the edge the woods. During the summer, you can visit the inside of the castle, guided by the owner himself. The rest of the year, you are free to visit the grounds.
