The Introd Castle does trace their ancestry to the 12th century when it was built with a rather simple, consisting of a square Tower surrounded by walls not overly thick. He is named in the documents of castellania of Châtel-Argent in 1244. For the sake of improving the structure, Pierre Sarriod in 1260 caused him to expand causing it to become a real Fortress. Additional modifications in the 15th century brought the castle to a more rounded shape. The Castle suffered two concussions in modern times that forced him to new restorations: a fire in the second half of the nineteenth century and one in the early 1900s. Especially in the latter case the work was directed in 1910 by architect Jean Chevalley to host fee, the cavalier Gonella, bringing the castle to the present form. Today the Castle, owned by the counts Caracciolo di Brienza, in its open to the public is managed by the Fondation Grand-Paradis, thanks to loan data from the accounts to the municipality of Introd. The Hall interior is decorated with a fresco which runs in the living room along the walls near the ceiling are framed many individual scenes each of which depicts a different tree.
The Introd Castle rises on a hill protected by rugged gorges of the stream the Rhêmes Savara and Dora (name of Introd, in fact, derives from "entre-eaux", meaning "between the waters") and probably dates back to the 12th century; like Graines Castle, the cause was probably a square Tower surrounded by defence walls. Pierre Sarriod of Introd transformed 1260 down the primitive Castle, who later alteration of fifteenth century changes almost rounded polygon that still distinguishes it from other valdostane castles. These changes mark the apogee of the House Sarriod, in whose hands had been joined the Lords of Introd and La Tour (Saint-Pierre). The Castle suffered two devastating fires in the second half of the 800 and was later restored at the beginning of ' 900 by cavalier Gardner who availed himself of the work by the architect Chevalley. Owned by the counts Caracciolo di Brienza and granted on loan to the municipality of Introd, the management of the castle was entrusted to the Fondation Grand Paradis that guarantees its fruition. Open to the public on the ground floor and the Park.
The castle is beautiful, even if you can't visit them all, since the upper floor is used as a summer residence by the current owners. Our guide, left a little to be desired, and never has seemed very prepared (or probably just sick), as were those of other neighboring castles.
The Introd Castle is beautiful, aesthetically well preserved. Full of events throughout the year. To visit!
