Owner description: Majestic, essential, powerful: these are the three adjectives that best describe this castle. A stone cube built in the late fourteenth century by Yblet of Challant on the rock overlooking the town of Verrès, in perfect harmony with the surrounding landscape. The military character of this building perfectly melts with elegant carved stone details decorating its windows, doors and shelves of monumental chimneys. A stunning staircase with flying buttresses reaches the upper floors. Every year the halls of the castle hosts the traditional carnival characters of Verrès, in a blend of history and legend.

The castle is empty, but worth a visit. The slove path to walk to the castle is quite tiring but once you are there, just pay 3 euros to enter the castle. One could say it's quite simple and plain, but it's not like that. It's amazing how every little particular was studied and there for a porpouse.and it was built in the XIV century! If you happen to be there, just go and see it!
