Château de Vitré


Vitré was the last stop on our recent Brittany trip before heading home. Like Rennes, it is a town filled with half timbered houses and medieval imagery, but the highlight of our visit was its château. This château's origins date back to before 1000. Its current form dates back to the late 1400's early 1500's (like every château in France it's seen numerous home improvement projects). The château now serves as the mairie for Vitré (town hall). Part of the château is available for viewing and we decided to take the tour.


We can across this little room in a high corner of the tower and thought...what the heck?! Then we saw the sign.

It's a medieval toilet. Kind of gives new meaning to the expression "Bombs away!" now doesn't it?
