Introd Castle (French: Château d’Introd) is located in Introd, Aosta Valley, Italy.

The Introd Castle was most likely constructed in the 12th century. having a very straightforward design that consists of a square keep enclosed by walls. It is referenced in Châtel-Argent records from 1244. It was expanded by Pierre Sarriod in 1260, turning it into a true fortification. The fortress was further altered in the 15th century, becoming rounder.

The building suffered damage from two fires in the 19th and 20th centuries. The inner hall is decorated with a fresco that runs along the walls of the room. Near the ceiling, numerous individual scenes are framed, and each one features a different tree. A trompe l’oeil tapestry is underneath.
