Baron Gamba Chatillon Castle

Chatillon

A cozy sojourn in Maison Perriere, located in Aosta Valley in Perriere (district of Aosta), will give you the opportunity to visit Chatillon.

Most likely, this area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. In 1252, the Challant family acquired the feud of Chatillon and they built two castles: the first, around the middle of the Thirteenth Century, while the second, in Ussel, was built in 1350. In 1901, a third castle was built, belonging to baron Gamba.

Thanks to the presence of iron mines, Chatillon began developing as an industrial hub, in XIV Century, reaching its peak four centuries later. Also the tradition in the textile and manufacturing industries is quite solid.

Beside the incredible castles and  several medieval towers, in Challant, the Chapel of our Lady of Grace, the Chapel of Saint Clair and the Church dedicated to the Saints Peter and  Paul are worth a visit.
