A cozy sojourn at La Stazione dell’Acqua, located in Val d’Aosta in the community of Buillett in Sorressamont near Introd (district of Aosta), will give you the opportunity to visit both Aosta and Introd.
The area of Aosta has already been inhabited since prehistoric times. In 202 B.C. Rome, after the victory of Scipio Africanus, wanting to create a defensive network on the Alps, built the fortified town of Aosta, providing it with an imposing surrounding wall and four gates. After the fall of the Roman Empire, it became an episcopal seat.
The Goths, the Franks, and the Langobards, occupied the town of Aosta in different times.
A thing from the past to admire in Saint Martin de Corléans is an interesting megalithic area. While the surrounding wall, the towers, the amphitheatre, the theatre, Augustus’ arch, the gates, the bridge on the River Buthier, the forensic cryptoporticus, the funerary area, and the Villa of the Consolata are all from Roman times. The Collegiate Church of Sant’Orso, the Cathedral devoted to John the Baptist and Santa Maria Assunta, and the bridge on the Grand Arvou are from the Middle Ages.
A cozy sojourn at La Stazione dell’Acqua, located in Val d’Aosta in the community of Buillett in Sorressamont near Introd (district of Aosta), will give you the chance to visit Introd.
This location has become quite famous after having hosted, for the summer break, two Popes, John Paul II and Benedict XVI.
Among the buildings that are worth visiting, we have the Castle of Introd, rebuilt between 1912 and 1915, with its mighty tower, then the fortified mansion of Vorbert and the ancient farmstead l’Ola. The parrish church, dated back to the Ninth Century and the Chapel of the Holy Shroud are both located in Plan d’Introd.
Of particular value, then, is the visit to the Ethnographic Museum of Maison Bruil, a valuable example of rural architecture, the current shape of which is the outcome of a complex architectural evolution that occurred between 1680 and 1856.
