Palais de l'Île

Interesting
The palace's stark walls reflected in the quiet water of the Thiou paint a splendid picture. Built on an island in the 12C, the residence of the counts of Geneva has been the state mint, a prison and a courthouse. Don't miss the former courtrooms, jailors' lodgings, prison cells and the old chapel. Exhibitions staged by the Architecture and Heritage Centre chronicle the town's evolution.
