Tower of the Lords of Faverges

Website
Info

This monumental heritage dates from the 13th century and is located between the Savoie County and Geneva County. The team of the Viuz-Faverges archaeological museum invites you to enjoy the panoramic view from the top of the Tower.

The imposing Castle was used to control the passage between the Savoie County and Geneva County.
Purchased by the town of Faverges in 1980, part of its buildings was used as an accomodation centre. The Tower - registered on the Historical Monuments' additional list in 1991 - was restored and provided with a circular hoard inaugurated in 2008.
