The Aosta Valley boasts a wealth of castles scattered throughout the region. Built along the central valley and the lateral valleys there is a total of over one hundred fortifications, fortified houses and keeps dating back to medieval times and later. Bard Fort has recently been reopened after extensive renovation and remains one of the Aosta Valley's most popular tourist attractions. In addition to Bard Fort, there are three marvellously preserved castles not to be missed, these are Fénis, Issogne and Verrès, where we recommend a guided visit during the summer months.
