In 1502, the Duke of Brissac tore down the original medieval castle from the 11th century and rebuilt it into the Château de Brissac that stands today. Located in Brissac-Quincé, the castle is infamous for its inhabitant: the Green Lady. When Charlotte de Brézé, the illegitimate daughter of King Charles VII, was caught having an affair by her husband, he murdered both Charlotte and her lover. She's stayed as a permanent resident in her green dress, and the current owners of the castle (the 13th Duke of Brissac and his family) say she's friendly. Patrons can take tours of their gorgeous home and grounds.
