Stockalper Castle

Former residence of the powerful Stockalper family. This castle can be seen from afar by its three towers topped with gleaming bulbs, planted from the road to Simplon. The enormous block of the main building has no less than eight floors, including the cellar. The great courtyard, lined with renovated galleries, is the centrepiece of this building which was inspired by the Tuscan Renaissance style.
