An opulent residence for the Challant family in medieval times, the pentagonal castle is now a museum run by the Aosta Valley autonomous region. Once inside the double boundary wall, you'll enter the ground floor to see the kitchen, woodshed, rainwater storage tank, and a display of medieval weaponry. Climb the stairs to the first floor to explore the lords' rooms and the chapel, where you'll find Giacomo Jacquerio's majestic frescoes.

  • Beautiful castle, still well preserved considering all the vicissitudes suffered. Easily accessible, it provides a guided tour. The guides are very cortesissime, prepared and available. Obligatory visit If you come to Valle d'aosta.
