Castle of the Dukes of Savoie, Chambery
(3.4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Used as an administrative building since the 13th century, Castle of the Dukes of Savoie functions as the prefecture of the Savoie General Council and the Savoie Academy. Originally built as a residence for the Dukes of Savoy in the 11th century, the castle features a large living room decorated in Louis XVI style. After indulging in the ornate salon, visit the chapel. If you're lucky, you may hear the chiming of 70 bells called "St. Francis de Sales. " Access to the gardens and courtyard is free, but to see the interior you must go on a guided tour.

  • Very nice to look at, full of charm and special in its own way. A Pearl of the town of Chambery.

  • We do not regret its entry ticket: very nice tour, points of history exciting especially for the Nice I am. We feasted. We even learned that the shroud of Turin St should rather be called the St shroud of Chambéry. Enjoy your visit.
