A13th century architectural jewel built by the House of Savoy. It's best to visit the Castle with a guide, or, if that is not possible, be sure to get the audio guide. Huge rooms, secret passage ways, a prison, courtyards - its a maze of...More

The tour was quite interesting as the castle’s guide showed us around explaining the time periods, the owners, and the uses of this early castle. Well worth the visit. Educational for those looking for information from 1005 to thee present about this part of Switzerland.
