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.

  • The best castel so far. Absolutely amazing, from the outside to the inside, very nice the guide as well. The visit is about 30 to 40 min long. But boy I wish it was longer! Must see!
  • Arrived as the castle was closing but the staff still gave us a quick tour around the grounds. Very kind. Beautifully situated looking into and over the valley.
