Chillon Castle - Château de Chillon by Montreux

 
 

The castle, still in excellent condition, dates from the 11th century and has been much modified and enlarged since then.

It's worth spending an afternoon viewing the tower, courtyards, dungeons and numerous rooms containing weapons, utensils and frescos.
