Secondo lo storico settecentesco Jean-Baptiste de Tillier, teoria recentemente messa in discussione, i Sarriod de La Tour discenderebbero da una delle più antiche famiglie nobili valdostane, quella dei signori di Bard.

L’esistenza della famiglia Sarriod è attestata sin dal XII secolo, legata ai signori di Bard politicamente, ma non da vincoli di consanguineità

Le origini del castello rimangono oscure.

L’edificio più antico comprendeva la torre entrale a pianta quadrata circondata da una cinta muraria. Questa configurazione si rifà al modello adottato dai primi castelli valdostani risalenti al periodo del X – XII secolo.


Nel 1420 i fratelli Yblet e Jean Sarriod divisero i loro possedimenti in due diverse signorie facenti capo ai castelli di Introd e di La Tour. Jean Sarriod fece costruire, dove era presente la torre denominata fin dal XIV secolo “Turris Sariodorum”, un vero e proprio castello con funzioni di rappresentanza con l’aggiunta di una serie di corpi di fabbrica.

Nuovi lavori furono approntati dopo la metà del XV secolo da Antoine Sarriod de La Tour con la trasformazione della cappella e dell’ala settentrionale.

Nei secoli successivi al castello furono aggiunti altri corpi di fabbrica. Probabilmente nel corso del XVI secolo fu costruita l’ala che oggi costituisce il prospetto orientale del castello, con l’aggiunta della torre all’angolo nord.

Il castello appartenne ai Sarriod de la Tour fino al 1923, anno in cui morì l’ultima discendente che lo lasciò in eredità al vescovo della cattedrale di Aosta.

In seguito passò al Senatore Bensa di Genova, i cui eredi, nel 1970, lo vendettero alla Regione della Valle d’Aosta.

Di notevole interesse è la “sala delle teste”.

Questo è il principale ambiente di rappresentanza del castello, che deve il suo nome al soffitto in legno sorretto da 171 mensole scolpite con figure grottesche e mostri fantastici.

    Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    I think that everything posted made a great deal of sense.
    But, think about this, what if you typed a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added
    a headline that makes people want more? I mean Sarriod de La Tour – – Medioevo –
    – Tra Storia e Mito is kinda plain. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post headlines to get viewers interested.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to grab people excited about what you’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it could make your website
    a little livelier.

    Hey! I know this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.

    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my
    own experience and thoughts online. Please let me
    know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

    Appreciate it!
