Historic site and monument

Keep of the Faverges Lords


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.


The Castle is located on the route of a Treasure Hunt starting from Faverges town centre. This Treasure Hunt is called "The Lords' Treasures" (n°5). Pass 3 sites 3 histoires: tickets for 2 museums + Castle Tower 7 €/adult and 4,50 €/child (5 to 14 years old).
