Petit-Vivy Castle is a castle in the Canton of Fribourg in Switzerland. It is a Swiss Heritage Site of National Significance.[1]

It is located near the dike surrounding the Schiffenensee and northeast of Barberêche. It is among the oldest preserved castles in the region. The still-preserved, mighty, four-sided keep was built in the second half of the 13th century, and has 3.5 m (11 ft) thick walls. Around the keep are the remains of former surrounding walls, arranged in triangular form. The residential buildings were built in the 16th century.
