Arnad is known for the famous Lard d'Arnad DOP and the Arnad-Montjovet DOC. Situated on the banks of the Dora Baltea, Arnad has its roots in tradition: from rock climbing among the most famous of the Alps to the walks in the woods of chestnut or between churches and castles, testimonies of a great past. Nature, sport, history, genuine flavors, relaxation.

The door of the Aosta Valley is a small world to discover. The village is characterized by the presence of the typical houses of the forts of medieval origin. Certainly deserve a visit to the Church of St Martin of Tours in Arnad-le-Vieux, The Shrine of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Machaby to the upper castle and the lower one and the monumental complex of Ostia.

To Machaby, at the beginning of the small village, is located the stone of fertility, also said chute of women or Guaita, stone linked to magical rituals celtic. Also present some rocky inscriptions.

In the territory of Arnad and on the bridge of Échallod passes the historic route of the Via Francigena, coming from Verrès direct and subsequently toward Bard and Donnas.
