Descriptive note: The castle is currently the site of the Dept. of Architecture of Politecnico of Turin. After a complex series of changes of owners, it was given by Duke Carlo Emanuele I to his daughter-in-law, young Cristina di Francia. In 1621, she commissioned radical structural changes to the riverside residence, in conformity with the French "pavillon-système" (a project by Carlo di Castellamonte, from 1621 to1641).
