The Tower tells the tale of the Loire

The Tower of Oudon is perched on a rocky outcrop from where river traffic could be watched.

For many years, it was an essential link in the defences of the Duchy of Brittany and its capital, Nantes. Then the castle passed into the hands of the Condé family who neglected it.

It became National Property at the time of the French Revolution and was close to ruin when it was listed as a historic monument in 1866 and restored. Today, it no longer keeps watch over the river, but the keep still offers one of the finest panoramic views along its course. Visitors can admire the setting and also illuminations and shows telling the eventful history of the river.
