Castles of Valle d'Aosta
Latest update: 21 February 2022
The castles of Valle d'Aosta are one of the most prominent sights dotted around the landscape of the region. Although Valle d'Aosta is the smallest of the 20 regions of Italy, so numerous are its castles that it appears every other Valdostano must have his own!
There are said to be in excess of 100 castles in the region and among them are some of the most famous in the country.
Fort Bard looks every bit the impregnable fortress it was no doubt designed to be while the Castello Savoia is hewn from a different kind of rock and designed more with aesthetics in mind.
