La Tour

Valpelline

Rules for visitors

Situated near the parish church, this fortified house was built in the 19th century and was later expanded and reconstructed.
Birthplace of Rodolfo of Valpelline, Bishop of Zion, La Tour was the seat of the courts, the stables and the granary of the Lord.
Today it still provides evidence of its imposing structure and the original square plan of the tower. The construction consists of six cellars, sixteen rooms and a loft. On the northern side you can see a dryer for wood and an underground store that was once used for agricultural equipment.
It is said that in one of the cellars, called “l’enfeur” (“hell”), the remains of human bodies were found and shackles that were probably used to chain prisoners.
