    Description:

    Located in a tiny village, population 143 (Dec 2009). The original majority language was Romansh (Mistail is the Romansh name.) The church of St. Peter is listed as a Swiss heritage site; it is considered the only largely preserved Carolingian three-apse hall church in Switzerland. The present church was built around 800 AD and belonged to a monastery complex that by 1154 had already been abolished. There are still fragments of Carolingian wall paintings inside.

    Description:

    An example of a 17th century house (unidentified) and shop with stepped gables and a Baroque painted facade. At the time of the lantern slide photograph (ca. 1890-1910) it is surrounded by shops and restaurants with perhaps a factory at the back. This would have been a wealthy merchant house or guildhall when originally built, with mercantile or shop space below and meeting or living quarters above.

    The Castle is first mentioned in 1272, but probably dates back to the Lords of Prangins. It was rebuilt by Louis I of Savoy. The rectangular building was built in a variety of building styles. In 1463, it was extensively rebuilt. Around the same time, the square César Tower or Tour de Rive (now a residence), was built to defend the city. Following the Swiss Confederation invasion of Vaud in 1530, the Bernese bailiff was at Nyon. In 1574-1580 the castle was converted into the seat of the baili…
