  • Once you’ve visited the Château museum, you’ll know all there is to know about the history of Vitré.

    A 15th century retable and triptych representing the life of Christ in 32 scenes, gold religious artefacts from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, liturgical ornaments, a sculpted ‘Adam and Eve’ doorway… A visit to this museum with its many artefacts will give you an insight into Vitré’s history. Don’t miss the late 19th century ‘cabinet de curiosité’ (cabinet of curiosities) in the Argenterie tower, or the natural science collection. And in the Saint Laurent tower you’ll find Medieval and Renaissance sculptures, including the early 15th century tomb of Saint Guy X, a fireplace dating back to 1583, tapestries from Flanders and Aubusson, as well as documents relating to the history of the town and its château.
