Architecture, Monuments, regional heritage

In the La Côte Region you will find architectural treasures such as the Morges and Prangins castle, or other ancient buildings witnessing the region's captivating history.

Look for the famous people who lived in the Region. If you pass through Morges, you will have the chance to discover the life of the actress Audrey Hepburn, or Ignacy Jan Paderewski, the famous Polish pianist and compositor to whom the city dedicated a museum.

In Nyon, follow the steps of Professor Calculus and Tintin: the Calculus Affair was published by Hergé in 1956, one of the greatest comic illustrator of the 20th century who had chosen Nyon to add spice to the plot of the disappearance of Professor Calculus.

We also invite you to discover the fishermens' village, a small picturesque area of wooden huts located by the lake, where professionals still use traditional fishing methods.

At the end of the walk in the vineyards between the villages Denens and Vufflens-le-Château, you will discover its impressive castle. In the old town of Cossonay you may admire beautiful ancient buildings. Passing by Montricher you can discover the Jan Michalski Foundation, dedicated to incredible architecture and literature works. The castle of Rolle will surprise you with its impressive architecture of the 13th century.
