Château de Venthône

A magnificent mediaeval building, the Château de Venthône refers to the story of the 13th-century knight Pierre de Venthône.

Through marriages and episcopal favour, various leading families of the Valais took their turn in occupying Venthône. Towards 1600, the Contrée de Sierre, and then the Bourgeoisie de Venthône took over the château and made some major changes.

The château is now used for exhibitions and can also be hired for weddings and other occasions.
