Annecy chateau-museum

Interesting
Dominating historic Annecy, the former residence of the counts of Geneva and the dukes of Genevois-Nemours is depicted by buildings spanning the 12C to the 16C: Queen's tower (12C), Old lodge (14-15C), Perrière tower (15C), New Lodge (16C). Today the castle is the site of the Regional alpine lakes observatory that will acquaint you with the complex local ecosystems and a museum dedicated to local arts and traditions, without forgetting a contemporary art collection.
