Menthon-St-Bernard Castle

Interesting
At the upper end of the town, not far from Lake Annecy, this château seems to soar into the sky as if wishing to emulate the surrounding peaks. Robust yet refined, the 11C-15C building was extensively reworked throughout the 19C. Bernard de Menthon, founder of the Hospice du Petit et du Grand-St-Bernard was born here in the 11C. Visitors can enjoy a fantastic view of the lake from the terrace of the château.
