"Chillon Castle visit" Chateau de Chillon Tip by sandysmith
Chateau de Chillon, Lausanne: 9 reviews and 15 photos
The great rock of Chillon projecting from Lake Geneva provided a natural stronghold, guarding the highway between Rome and its northern empire. Alpine views are superb - especially from the prison chamber. Byrom wrote a famous poem 'The Prissoner of Chillon' inspired by a historical episode relating to the imprisonment of Bonivar in the 16th century.
Look for Byron's name, inscribed by the poet on the third pillar.
