Castle Tourist Spot
At the top of a grassy knoll, Castello di Fenis features limestone watchtowers that rise high above the countryside. An opulent residence for the Challant family in medieval times, the pentagonal castle is now a museum run by the Aosta Valley autonomous region. Once inside the double boundary wall, you'll enter the ground floor to see the kitchen, woodshed, rainwater storage tank, and a display of medieval weaponry. Climb the stairs to the first floor to explore the lords' rooms and the chapel, where you'll find Giacomo Jacquerio's majestic frescoes. Guided tours are only in Italian, but informative pamphlets are available in other languages. By using our Fenis tourist route planner, you can arrange your visit to Castello di Fenis and other attractions in Fenis.

  • Impressive castle to visit both from outside and inside. Well reserved, guided tours available inside however mainly in italic and just few in English so you better check the hours if needed in English.
  • It's not completely authentic but it's a cool place to stop on your way to wherever you are going. We didn't pay to go inside but the view from the outside is awesome.
  • Great castle with insightful guided tours : only throwback you can't walk around without a guide 🏰🏔🇮🇹
