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

An austere fortress, standing impressively in the historic French region of Loire-Atlantique, is the Nantes Castle.

Resplendent against the lovely surroundings of the Loire, it sits peacefully on the river's bank.

Embodying the architecture of the Middle Ages, this fortress was constructed by Duke Francis II.

Also known as the ''Castle of the Dukes of Brittany'' this structure once served as the home for these prestigious nobles.

The castle’s ramparts, lined with enlivening gardens, offer splendid insights into the prolific history of the monument.

This gorgeous edifice is a staggering and imposing example of Renaissance style architecture.
