Built from the 16C on a rock overlooking the Rhone, in the 19C this little castle with a square keep and encircled by bastions became part of the Dufour line of defence (after the Swiss general). Built in 1831, the fortifications were designed to defend the Confederation against a possible war in Europe. The castle is now home to a gallery hosting temporary exhibitions devoted to the region's cultural history.
