Fort Bard, Aosta Valley region of Italy

This imposing fortress constructed on a rock spur above the village has served as a strategic defense post for centuries. It is almost certain that there was some type of fortification here in pre-Roman times and many believe that an Ostrogoth king had a fortress here as early as the 6th century. No one can negate the records showing that Viscount Aosta Boso had a defensive settlement here in 1034. The fortress came under the Savoys in the 13th century.
