The town of Briancon may be small but it holds quite a treasure trove that will delight any tourist that comes here. One of the ancient towns in France, Briancon's attractions lie in its ancient streets, town areas and majestic castles. One of such attractions is the Fort du Chateau.
Dominating the skyline of this small, mountain town, the Fort du Chateau is considered to be one of the amazing pieces of architecture in Briancon. Set on a large hill overlooking the town, the chateau was the residence of the dignitaries for quite a number of centuries. The town literally grew around the castle in order to cater to the needs of the dukes in residence. However, even if the chateau is among Briancon's attractions, it is only open for tours during summers. Getting on one of these tours is the only way you can gain access to the castle and its history. Of course, a visit here will give you an idea of the formation of the town itself.
