Tour to Rennes (20-25/09/2012)

DAY 5 (part 2 of 2): Fougères

We had to be back at the hotel by early afternoon as the plan was to visit Fougères, a medieval fortified town not far from Rennes. We first walked up a steep hill to the upper town, where the church of St Leonard is set on a vantage point overlooking the lower town with its massive fortified castle. There we also found a small but interesting public garden. We then took a more leisurely walk along a narrow path back down to the castle, passing a more formal garden. After an amble through some of the narrow streets in the lower town, we made our way to the castle, where we were given an audio guide to help us find our way around.
