Short and undemanding itinerary, ideal for savoring in a simple and direct manner the charm of this corner of Bassa Valley, which houses some of the most important historical and architectural testimonials of the region. Among these is Bard Fortress, ancient bulwark of defense strategically situated at the narrowest point of the central valley.
Over the course of the centuries it suffered numerous assaults, up until the decisive one by Napoleon’s armada, who in 1800 besieged and destroyed it. It was rebuilt by the Savoys in 1827. Continuing on, after about six miles you encounter another imposing structure: The fifteenth century Challand castle in Verrès. And then, on the way back, don’t miss the Issogne castle, magnificent Renaissance manor.
