AOSTA VALLEY CASTLES
Just enter Valle d'Aosta to discover that it is a land of castles: almost 200 if we count towers, fortresses and castles of medieval origin. They dot the landscape as evidence of the strategic importance that the Aosta Valley has assumed for centuries in the history of the House of Savoy. The most representative are certainly Fénis, Verrès, Issogne, Introd and Sarriod de la Tour. But the more recent Forte di Bard also holds a prominent place on a cultural level: it holds an important museum dedicated to the Alps.
