The Château of Angers is proud to exhibit the Apocalypse Tapestry, the largest and most famous masterpiece of medieval tapestry weaving.

The dazzling and mysterious visions of the Revelation to St John, expressed in the 14th century in monumental images of great plastic beauty, demand admiration.

This document, designed as a guide for the serious visitor, is illustrated by the most beautiful details of the reverse side of the tapestry, which has preserved the intensity of the original colours. In its cover folds the guide contains a full presentation of the front side of the tapestry’s surviving sections.
