Montrottier Castle

Interesting
The castle, standing on an isolated hillock not far from the Fier gorges, was built between the 13 and 16C. It is a fine specimen of Savoyard military architecture and its 36m/118ft-tall round keep commands a fine view. The castle is home to significant collections, bequeathed, along with the castle itself, to the Académie Florimontane: weapons, armoury, earthenware, porcelain, Far Eastern ceramics, antique furniture and four 16C bronze bas-reliefs by Nuremberg artists, Peter and Hans Vischer.
