At the top of a grassy knoll, Castello di Fenis features limestone watchtowers that rise high above the countryside. 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. Guided tours are only in Italian, but informative pamphlets are available in other languages. Before you visit Fenis, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Castello di Fenis Reviews
Giornata splendida , guida simpatica e preparata zero visitatori , cosa volere di piu' . Senza dubbio l'esterno e' molto piu' bello dell'interno che risulta un po' spoglio e buio ma bisogna ricordarsi... more »Wonderful day, sympathetic guide and prepared zero visitors, what more do you want. Undoubtedly the exterior is much more beautiful than the interior that is a bit bare and dark but you have to remember that it is a medieval castle so you can't compare it to a palace of Caserta as I read.... The cost of the ticket is 7 euros including the guide, duration of the visit for the entire structure less than an hour
È una bella fortezza antica da fuori e molto imponente e ben curato.alla interno nulla di che...un po spoglio. more »It is a beautiful ancient fortress from the outside and very imposing and well cared for, inside nothing that... a little bare.
Visiting this castle it is like going back in time to the middle ages. The castle is original while the furniture has been added recently since the original one has been lost during the time in which the castle was used as a cattle stable. Guided visits only. The guides are very competent.
A beautiful little fortress/castle. Really good medieval feel. Beautiful setting.
