On site, thanks to explanatory panels, you will understand the medieval history of these two neighbouring and rival fortresses.

Dating from the 10th century, these two castles carry in them the history of the territory. The Belvedere des Châteaux rises to 717 meters, you will discover an exceptional panorama on the Geneva, the Jura and the Prealps.

On site, the Art'llingeoise gallery offers temporary exhibitions during the summer period (paintings, sculptures, photographs...).
