Chillon Castle - Switzerland

Written by  Yannick Pian / Nine 61

This is a beautiful short video of Chillon Castle, one of the most visited castles in Switzerland.  It is located just south of Veytaux, on Lake Geneva on a narrow shore between Montreux and Villeneuve.  The history of this castle goes back many centuries to approximately the year 1000, having once been a Roman outpost and then heavily influenced by several other significant periods in Swiss history - the Savoy, Bernese and Vaudois periods.  The castle is situated in a most beautiful setting on the shores of Lake Geneva, also known as Lac Leman, at the foot of the Alps.  It is worth a visit for its breathtaking views and its amazing architecture.
