Château de Tourbillon

Château de Tourbillon Review

Crowning Tourbillon, the higher of Sion's hills, the ruined château was built as a bishop's residence at the end of the 13th century and destroyed by fire in 1788. If you take the rugged walk uphill, try to time it for a visit to the tiny chapel with its ancient, layered frescoes.
