Where fairy tales come true
The first sovereign of Italy, a great lover of the mountains, gave a great impetus to the development of these places, which became the destination of many tourists.
What see?
- Castel Savoia: built by Queen Margherita of Savoy as a summer residence, it stands at the foot of Colle della Ranzola in the place called “Belvedere”, due to the splendid view that from there dominates the whole valley up to the Lyskamm glacier.
The sundial: built on the façade in 1922, bears the words of good wishes already shown on a 1915 sundial from Cogne: "Sit patriae aurea quaevis" - "Every hour be golden for the homeland". The wish, unfortunately, would not have been realized by the dramatic events that took place in Italy in that year.
The kitchens: located in a building not far from the castle, they are connected to the dining room by an underground Decauville.
The botanical garden: inaugurated in 1990 in the park at the foot of the manor, it consists of rocky flower beds with botanical species typical of the alpine environment.
Other dependencies of the castle are the Villa Belvedere, originally used as a guesthouse and royal gendarmerie, and the small house known as Romitaggio Carducci, dedicated to the poet who was a devoted admirer and cantor of the Queen.
