Located in an exceptional site, at the confluence of the Sèvre Nantaise and one of its tributaries, the Crûme, the castle, with its ovoid enclosure, about 700 metres long and with an interior surface area of nearly 3 hectares, is a typical example of a medieval fortress. Gilles de Rais, Joan of Arc's comrade-in-arms, is one of the most important figures of the late Middle Ages. A great war captain, he retired to Tiffauges after the French campaign against the English. He was a patron of the arts, an alchemist and... a murderer. Executed in Nantes at the age of 36, he became the Bluebeard of legend.
