Keep of the Faverges Lords

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 Keep was a 360° control station towering over the surrounding valleys.
Purchased by the town of Faverges in 1980, part of its buildings was used as an accomodation centre. The Keep - registered on the Historical Monuments' additional list in 1991 - was restored and provided with a circular hoard inaugurated in 2008.
