The Château de Chillon is far and away the most famous castle in Switzerland. It’s easy to see why. Situated on the eastern edge of Lake Geneva, this iconic structure dates back to the 11th century and was never taken by siege at any point in its history. Located near Monteux (home to the justly famous Monteux Jazz Festival), the site borrows much of its grandeur from its proximity to the lake and backdrop of the Dents du Midi (translation: Teeth of the South) Mountains.
