    Description:

    Much of its reputation is due to literary descriptions, especially those by Jean-Jacques Rousseau (La Nouvelle Héloïse, 1761), Percy Bysshe Shelley (History of a Six Weeks’ Tour, London, 1817) and Lord Byron (The Prisoner of Chillon, 1816). Chillon Castle is first recorded in 1150, but it may have been constructed several decades earlier. The castle was progressively enlarged and its defenses reinforced by the counts of Savoy, Thomas I (reigned 1189-1233) and Peter II (reigned 1263-1268)….

    Description:

    The castle was built in 1425 on the site of a previous medieval castle by Henri de Colombier. In 1530, it was set on fire by Bernese troops. Of the original castle by Henri Colombier, the donjon, several towers, outbuildings, the surrounding wall and the gate house remain. In 1641 it was acquired by the de Senarclens family. The castle is currently privately owned and can not be visited. It is an extraordinary example of the tendency to build in an elaborate style at a time when aesthetic ele…

It was an artillery fortress overlooking the Rhine river with elevated cannon emplacements. It was already rather militarily outmoded by the time it was built. The city of Schaffhausen came into being at the location where trading ships had to set anchor because the Rhine Falls made it impossible …
