Angers and Apocalypse

On the way back from Le Pouliguen, we stopped at the city of Angers and visited the imposing Château. You have to try and imagine the towers with pointed rooves on top to see how it would have been in the medieval period. Inside is preserved the second oldest tapestry in France, the Tapestry of the Apocalypse, a vast work in brilliant colours which details the fate awaiting mankind as surmised in Revelations, or 'The Book of Apocalypse' as French bibles translate it.
