Notes: Saint-Pierre Castle (Italian: Castello di Saint-Pierre, French: Ch√Ęteau de Saint-Pierre) is a late 12th century castle located at Saint-Pierre in the Aosta Valley, Italy.The first records of the castle date from the late 12th century and it is thought that is when the castle was first constructed. Far less grand than it is today, the original castle consisted only of basic walls and two towers. Over subsequent centuries, the castle had a number of owners including members of the House of Savoy. A family of local nobility (House of Roncas, or Maison de Roncas in French) purchased the castle in the 17th century and it was that family that expanded the castle into a large fortified residence.
