The castle of Josselin
Situated on the banks of the river Oust, the town of Josselin is dominated by its majestic castle, a medieval fortress that has been modified several times over the years.
On the river side, its 3 round towers that are reflected in the waterway are impressive. They testify to its feudal origins. On the garden side, its flamboyant gothic style facade, modified in the Renaissance period, is amazing. A rare fact, this sumptuous monument has been owned by the Rohan family for over 1000 years! A visit is necessary. The entrance ticket to the castle includes access to the first floor, the gardens and the Doll and Toy Museum, so you can end the day with your children more than happy!

- A walk. A pedestrian circuit proposes to you to discover all the heritage of this city of character in 3,6 km of walk.
As wonderful as the fortress is, don’t forget to take a tour of the city and its remarkable medieval suburb. On the program:
- The Sainte-Croix district and its half-timbered houses;
