Château de Nyon

Interesting
Drastically renovated by the Bernese in the 16C, this construction of feudal origin, property of the city of Nyon since 1804, has five different towers, each topped with a pepper box fortification. From the terrace, there is a pretty view of the Rive quarter and the Petit Lac (viewpoint indicator). The museum, installed in its walls, showcases rich historic collections from the Neolithic to the present day, porcelain (1781-1813) from the famous manufacturer and 19C ceramics.
