The Château de Villa's history

The first stones of this architectural gem were laid in the 16th century by a local patrician family. The octagonal tower and eastern wing of the building are the oldest part of the structure. The west side of the chateau, with its magnificent entrance were built during the 17th century when the manor became the owners’ main residence. Successive generations improved the interior of their chateau home, which since the mid-20th century has been classified as part of Sierre’s historical buildings. Also noteworthy: a bronze statue by sculptor Jacques Barman in the courtyard, “Le cheval et la danseuse” (the horse and the dancer), created in 1984.
