DescriptionMontmélian's strategic location explains the creation and development of this illustrious stronghold many years ago.
From the Middle Ages to the modern era, the castle, then the fort, were besieged multiple times. In order to keep up with advances in artillery and military science, the Maison de Savoie constantly ordered repairs, renovations and modifications, making Montmélian one of the biggest strongholds in Europe.
