Medieval Musings

We did a bit of shopping this morning and found this stunning Louis-Philippe book matched walnut chest, c. 1830.

Then we visited the Chateau de Fougeres, the largest medieval castle in Europe.  We are in Brittany now and are learning much about the history of Brittany and their constant battles with the English and the French as they sought to maintain their independence.  Brittany finally became an official part of France only 500 years ago.

We ended the day with a stroll through the medieval quarter below the castle.
