The Rolle Castle is a medieval fortress built in the 13th Century. Its inner courtyard and the corner towers, that are different one from the other, embody its particularity. In 1798 the fortress became public property of the city of Rolle.
Among the numerous fortified castles that were built during the medieval period on the shores of the lake Geneva, the Rolle Castle is probably one of the most mysterious, considering its origin and the history of its construction. It was built indeed very close to the lake, and used to be protected by a moat towards the city.
The courtyard is particularly well suited to hold various events. Nowadays the castle hosts the town’s Boardroom, and a reception area which is also suitable for exhibitions.
