The Anne-de-Bretagne Tower

The Anne-de-Bretagne tower is a tower of the fifteenth century, built by Anne de Bretagne in Montfort l'Amaury.

This tower was built on the site of the ruins of the old castle of the twelfth century, destroyed by the English during the Hundred Years War. This dungeon is too emblematic of Montfort l'Amaury that we forget to describe the appearance: an irregular octagon on three levels, a width of twenty meters, the walls of two to three meters of thickness and a height of approximately eighteen meters.

Duchess Anne of Brittany (1477-1514) spent five years in Montfort-lAmaury, he is also the church of Saint-Pierre.

The tower was an historic monument in 1862.
