A city of art and history at the heart of the Alps, Chambéry was once the capital of Savoie and has preserved a remarkable old centre dominated by the Ducs de Savoie Castle and its Flamboyant Sainte Chapelle, which sheltered the Sacred Shroud until it was moved to Turin.
Its old centre, the periphery of which brings Turin to mind actually, was built up during the time of the kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia, ...
The Holy Chapel was built between 1408 and 1425 by Amadeus VIII.
This castle was the main residence of the House of Savoie from 1295 to 1563. Its chapel was home to the Shroud of Turin from 1511 to 1527. Today it holds a replica of the original.
The castle's former gardener's house was turned into the current Museum of Natural History.
The historical capital of the Savoie region until 1562, its architecture is a blend of French and Italian influences.
Many events, like garage sales, take place in Chambéry, especially during the summer season.
A city of art and history at the heart of the Savoie region, Chambéry has a magnificent historical centre and is close to the largest skiing areas in Europe.
