    Take a tour of Rohan Castle in Pontivy, France – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.

    In the rustic yet charming French town of Pontivy rests a beautiful medieval castle.

    One of the most influential and dominant families of the town, the Rohan family, built this majestic structure, aptly named Rohan Castle.

    It is said that this imposing structure was built to establish the superiority of the Rohan clan in Brittany.

    Finished by the late 15th century, it became one of the finest examples of Breton military architecture.

    Spread over acres of lush green land in the vicinity of River Blavet, this medieval castle is reminiscent of the authoritative medieval France.

    Owned by the Josselin family, the castle today hosts various cultural exhibitions and events.
