Area: France      Date: 6 January 2014
The Château de Miolans is a former fortress located in a remote area of Savoy between Italy and France. The site, which has been occupied since the fourth century AD, strategically controlled the route across the junction of the Isere and Arc rivers. The fortress was converted into a prison by the Counts of Savoy in the mid-16th century.
Among the celebrities detained there was also the Marquis de Sade, who, however, managed to escape.
At the foot of the castle lies the Combe de Savoie.
