Angers is a city in France in the département of Maine-et-Loire, c. 300 km south-west of Paris. Angers is located in the French region known by its pre-revolutionary, provincial name, Anjou, and its inhabitants are called Angevins. There are 150,000 people in the city of Angers and close to 270,000 in its metropolitan area. The city traces its roots to early Roman times. It occupies both banks of the Maine, which is spanned by six bridges. The district along the river is famous for its flourishing nurseries and market gardens. It is well known for its fresh produce and cut flowers. read full wikipedia reference about Angers, France ANGERS , capital of the ancient county of Anjou, stands majestically on the banks of the Maine, which feeds the Loire just south of the city with the waters of the Mayenne, Sarthe and Loir rivers. Long known as "Black Angers" from the gloomy-coloured slate and stone quarried here since the ninth century, it is actually a very pretty, friendly town, with a lively atmosphere. The overriding reason for coming here is to see its two stunning prize tapestry series, the fourteenth-century Apocalypse and the twentieth-century Chant du Monde . Your lasting impression of Angers will be of the château , an impressive, sturdy fortress by the river, its moat now filled with striking formal flower arrangements and softened by trees. From here, it's just a fifteen-minute stroll east to the cathedral and its entourage of several smaller churches and museums. Across the pont Verdun from the château is the suburb of La Doutre , where the Hôpital St-Jean houses the modern response to the castle's Apocalypse tapestry, Le Chant du Monde . Further out in the suburbs are a rash of interesting museums, easily reached by bus, exalting everything from early aeroplanes to Cointreau and communication methods.
