Interesting
The admirably restored rooms of Penthes Chateau, an attractive 14C edifice modified several times, showcase these collections devoted to Swiss nationals who have influenced events abroad, from the medieval era to the present day, from diplomatic, military, economic, literary, scientific and artistic standpoints. It is a treasure trove of documents, paintings, weapons, furniture, etc.
