La Roche-sur-Foron
The Essential
The medieval heart of this former 14C free city unfolds around the Counts of Geneva tower on a rocky spur and all that remains of the castle destroyed in 1590. After climbing 137 steps to the top, the view from its rampart walk sweeps over the Arve valley and the town, whose houses sport are depicted by tiled roofs, mullioned windows and embellished arches.
