SWITZERLAND - Chillon Castle (I)

(1 vote)

   CHILLON CASTLE is an island castle located on LAKE GENEVA (Lac Léman), south of VEYTAUX in the canton of VAUD. It is situated at the eastern end of the lake, on the narrow shore between MONTREUX and VILLENEUVE, which gives access to the Alpine valley of the RHONE. CHILLON is amongst the most visited castles in SWITZERLAND and EUROPE.
   CHILLON began as a Roman outpost, guarding the strategic road through the Alpine passes. The later history of CHILLON was influenced by three major periods: the Savoy Period, the Bernese Period, and the Vaudois Period.
   During the 16th century Wars of Religion, it was used by the dukes of SAVOY to house prisoners (i.s.).
