Chateau de la Batiaz, Martigny

#6 of 12 in Things to do in Martigny
La Bâtiaz Castle is a castle in the municipality of Martigny of the Canton of Valais in Switzerland. It is a Swiss heritage site of national significance.The garderobes (toilets) at La Bâtiaz played a part in determining that the architect for the UNESCO listed castles in Wales came from Savoy before working in Wales. Historian and custodian A. J. Taylor travelled to La Bâtiaz and noticed that the castle and the one at Harlech shared one unique feature, the design of their toilets. The discovery enabled Taylor to confirm that James of Saint George had been the architect of both.

  • Walk about 10 minutes to climb to the Castle, or so the Walkman Martigny train... Between us, the site should be highlighted more... Restaurant with medieval specialties, room for weddings, conferences, etc... Tour of the Dungeon... 125 steps for an unobstructed view over the plain of the Rhône
