For this week’s challenge, for the love of “doors”, here are pictures of an intriguing entrance. What makes it intriguing is that you have to walk across a draw-bridge high over an empty moat, and it also has stairs that climb up from the bottom of the moat. All these paths lead into a medieval fortress which surrounds and protects the Chateau d’ Angers.
This medieval fortress was built to protect the Anjou people of the area from the Normans in the Loire Valley back in 9th century France.
This massive fortress has 17 towers with 8 foot thick walls ringed by moats.
The fortress was built, in a great defensive position, on a rocky promontory overlooking the Maine river and when we walked along the top of the towers the views were fantastic.
