La Bâtiaz Castle is a castle in the municipality of Martigny of the Canton of Valais in Switzerland. It is a Swiss heritage site of national significance.
The garderobes (toilets) at La Bâtiaz played a part in determining that the architect for the UNESCO listed castles in Wales came from Savoy before working in Wales. Historian and custodian A. J. Taylor travelled to La Bâtiaz and noticed that the castle and the one at Harlech shared one unique feature, the design of their toilets. The discovery enabled Taylor to confirm that James of Saint George had been the architect of both.

  • It is not a place of great interest, it is worth dwelling a few minutes just because the ascent is very fast and the panorama that you can admire on the valley below is discreet.

  • After a 10-minute stroll through the vineyards we reached the Castle. Inside the courtyard are exhibited in the ancient war machines. You can access the top of the tower you can see the city from above. Within the Tower there are traces of the presence of pigeons, a cleaner would be most appreciated.
