The fortress overlooks the village and the pond. It is listed as a historic monument.
Built in its current form in 1458, it retains its eight towers, its curtain walls, its two-storey barbican and its miniature castle.
The barbican that guards the drawbridge is a fine example of medieval French military architecture.
The castle is open to visitors, who can see the furnished halls of the seigneur’s living quarters and the romantic grounds.

Every summer, in July and August, dramatised tours are organised in Lassay-les-Châteaux, a Small Town of Character. The sketches are performed by volunteer actors.
