August 2014      Gressoney-St-Jean

In between our hikes we took a day off to visit the castles of Aosta. We managed to squeeze in four of them in one day. The most spectacular was the castle of the Savoy dynasty.  Needless to say, they knew how to pick a spectacular site.

Here are some pictures of the drive from St. Vincent to Gressoney Valley.
