Overview

Majestic, essential, powerful: these are the three adjectives that best describe this castle. A stone cube built in the late fourteenth century by Yblet of Challant on the rock overlooking the town of Verrès, in perfect harmony with the surrounding landscape. The military character of this building perfectly melts with elegant carved stone details decorating its windows, doors and shelves of monumental chimneys. A stunning staircase with flying buttresses reaches the upper floors. Every year the halls of the castle hosts the traditional carnival characters of Verrès, in a blend of history and legend.

By chance we decided to get there. What a surprise! Terrific view and well organized visit. Castle guide very professional and very good story telling. One of the most worth visit to a castle with a lot of interesting things to be discovered.

The Verres castle is from the 1400's it's a "rock solid" fortress, there's no furniture inside, but it's worth visiting to get a feeling of how life used to be! It's a quick visit and it's about €$3,00 per person. To reach the castle there's...More

The castle is empty, but worth a visit. The slove path to walk to the castle is quite tiring but once you are there, just pay 3 euros to enter the castle. One could say it's quite simple and plain, but it's not like that....More
