A BIT OF HISTORY
Fenestrelle is a small village at 1150 meters above sea level nestled among the mountains of Alta Val Chisone, in the province of Turin, 22 km far from Sestriere.
The name comes from “Fines Terrae Cotti” and it means “the end of the lands of the Celtic king Cozio”, a sovereign ally of the Ancient Rome and who lived in the first century B.C. ..
The town therefore has a long history. It was born as a settlement of ancient independent tribes and in Roman times it was an important military garrison and a well-known trade center outside of Gaul. In the Middle Ages it was the seat of feudal lords who ruled the territories of the upper valley, until the conquest of the Kingdom of France.
