Trip Info

An easy, enjoyable walk through the old fortress gives you the opportunity to feel the ancient military atmosphere. The itinerary is also accessible to visitors with disabilities thanks to the panoramic lifts.

The village of Bard is really like a book of history. It is a typical transit village that trails along the Roman road to Gaul. A fascinating place that in Medieval age was a throughway for caravans, businessmen, soldiers or pilgrims. All the noteworthy residences of today can trace their Medieval origins, recognizable by heraldic emblems and crossed windows.

The Fortress of Bard hosts us with all its magnificence! The old castle, mentioned for the first time in 1034, was completely destroyed at beginning of 19th century. We know that the old castle was never involved in a military attack until May 1800, when it stopped the advancing Napoleon’s army.

The current fortress was built during the 19th century when Carlo Felice of Savoy decided to have the Fort rebuilt. The Fortress comprises many buildings and is nowadays the main cultural site of the Aosta Valley, hosting museums and exhibitions. The Museum of the Alps is an interactive museum about Alps. The Fortress also hosts art exhibitions of famous painters and photo exhibitions.
