Château de Brézé in the Loire Valley

A unique 11th century medieval fortress with 1km of underground tunnels. Visit Château de Brézé in the Loire Valley and take a guided tour in the underground passageways, just 10 minutes from Saumur.

With history dating back to the 11th century and having been completely transformed in the 16th and again in the 19th century, Château de Brézé now produces wine from the local vineyards.

Château de Brézé has medieval and renaissance architectural features, but the most interesting part are the tunnels, 1km in length beneath the château.

Château de Brézé is open to the public and offers guided tours. They also hold a medieval tournament during the summertime, with jousting, music, markets and demonstrations.
