The route of the Arnad castles

Resorts: Arnad

Starting from the junction with the Arnad road, begins an easy route along which you can admire the Arnad castles.

Technical Information


The first caste on the route is the Vallaise Castle, in a panoramic position, surrounded by vineyards (not yet open to the public). Inside the castle there are many frescoes representing mythological and biblical scenes, imaginary landscapes and allegories and, in the main hall, ten views of places belonging to the possessions of the Vallaise family.
Going on, we find the remains of the Lower Castle de la Côte, another house of the Vallaise family dated XV century. The last one, the Upper Castle, stands on a rocky outcrop overlooking the town and is now reduced to the state of ruin although the visit is now possible with the help of an easy scaffolding.
