You know you’re in France when…there’s a castle in the middle of town.
Nantes is home to the Château des ducs de Bretagne, which is great and lovely and completely commonplace for the Nantais. But every time I pass, I think, “Wow! A castle! Right there! In the middle of town! Hot dog!” (good thing I only think these things…).
For as many times as I’ve walked by, I haven’t explored the château nearly enough. Guess I’ll have to go do that!
