The château was ransacked in 1692 by the Duke of Savoy, and its partial restoration only began in 1957 when it was purchased by the local municipality.
The marble slabs, stained glass windows, coats of arms, statues, French
style ceiling decorations, mullion windows, fireplaces, etc. are all
remnants of a glorious past to admire when you visit the chapel, built
in the flamboyant gothic style, the guardroom and the seigneurial home.
