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.
