Group visit: Miolans, a formidable castle, a feared prison


About us

Perched on a rocky spur leaning against the Bauges massif, this impressive medieval fortress dominates the Combe de Savoie, and offers an admirable panorama from Mont-Blanc to the Vercors. The castle houses a charming medieval-inspired garden.

An impressive medieval fortress, the main residence of the lords of Miolans, which became the prison of the States of Savoy: This romantic ruin, classified as a Historic Monument, today offers a magnificent setting for visits. The description of the defenses of its access ramp, the evocation of life in the Middle Ages and the discovery of its panorama make the site particularly attractive.
