Le château de Laval

Built in the early eleventh century, the castle of Laval is composed of two parts: the old castle (built between the eleventh and sixteenth centuries) and the new castle (built between the sixteenth and nineteenth century). Previously, the building drew a large polygonal enclosure with seven round towers. The seignerie Laval was born in the early eleventh century.

During the Revolution, the castle becomes a public good. During the nineteenth century, the old castle was transformed into a prison and the new castle courthouse.

Today, the old castle houses the Museum of the old castle which has varied collections, ranging from academic painting archeology and local history.
