Castle Batiaz Castle on the crag
Built in 1260, this Medieval Swiss Chateau rises up from the rocky mountaintop over the town of Martigny. It is the only remaining symbol of medieval era history in this area. This imposing figure towers over the Rhone Valley below, visible to travellers arriving from all directions.

Take this chance to stretch your legs with a gradual 2-mile hike through vineyards to reach its summit, or take a train from the town center, for spectacular views in every direction. While there, tour the courtyard, large hall, chapel, and tower to see a well-preserved castle from this era. Don’t miss the chance to visit the on-site medieval tavern for an authentic meal, or pack a picnic to enjoy on the grounds. As stop here will certainly provide a peaceful mountain respite from your journey.
