Defending the western border of Anjou against Brittany, Pouancé is nicknamed the "second castle of Anjou" because of its size, which is just less that of the castle of Angers. It belonged to the Breton march, facing the Breton castle of hâteaubriant. Situated in a location which was fortified in the 11th century, the castle was built between the 12th and 15th centuries. Besieged several times during the Hundred Years' War, it became a strategic fortress at the end of the 15th century. Ruined during the 16th century and completely abandoned since the 18th, it was saved from destruction when Louis Bessièèe, a inhabitant of Pouancé, decided to restore it in the 1960s.
